Scope and content
Black cover album with grey pages. Photographs glued in. Bound together by screwposts. Some photographs are torn, cut, cracked; many are loose or coming loose. Many pages are left blank; approximately ten to fifteen pages from the back of the album, there is a newspaper clipping of Princess Elizabeth holding baby Princess Anne (b. 1950).
Album belonged to a nurse from Alexander Ontario who served in Cuba during the Spanish-American War. Some are amateur travel photographs and some appear to be taken with the purpose of being sold as a souvenir, featuring text.
Included are images of Havana, the coast, harbour, buildings, monuments, etc; the Red Cross Building, a U.S. hospital, a man dead on a stretcher, bullfights, and locals. Possibly a photo of Theodore Roosevent delivering the U.S. Soldiers.
Also included are an invitation, a newspaper cutout of an illustration of The Cane-bottom'd Char by W.M. Thackeray and an unidentified pressed plant leaf.
Photographs in bad condition, some are torn, and are very brittle, cracked, creased, folded. Yellowed and faded. Album is in good condition. Pages yellowing. Some loose photographs.
