The spine is in delicate condition and pages are coming loose. Pages are an off-white colour with decorative gold embossing. Photographs are slid in between two pieces of card with cutouts to view the images and hold them in place. Some photographs have a year and/or a name written on them in black ink.
Photographs are portraits taken primarily in Swedish photography studios, mostly in Gothenburg, although there is one that was taken in New York City. They are primarily single-subject portraits, but occassionally feature a small group. All have been posed for and taken in a studio.
