Photograph Album

Pages: 0 – 19 (& loose inserts)

See more pages of photos:
20–39,  40–59,  60–79,  80–99.

It is likely this was Alfred’s first album – 349 photos (including 3 loose inserts) on 99 pages.  Apparently, he first filled the front side of each page (the odd numbered pages), then began over, filling the back sides (the even numbered pages).  Consequently, pages with photos of him as a boy in school are intermixed with pages of photos of him as a young man playing polo.

The photos with a number inscribed in a corner of the image were most likely purchased from professional photographers.  Otherwise, the photos were either taken by Alfred or given to him by friends and relatives.  Amateur photographers all, many of their photos are hazy.


We are enormously grateful to David & Jean Benitz for loaning us the album to copy.
