[PHOTO ALBUM OF SCENES IN WASHINGTON STATE, THE PHILIPPINES, JAPAN, HAWAII, AND ALASKA].
[Various locations. ca. 1910]. 26pp. containing eighty-six photographs, nine colored photographs, and one photographic postcard. Two photos 8 x 6 inches, the remainder approximately 3 1/2 x 4 1/2 inches. Oblong quarto. Original black cloth. Binding separating from text block; corners and extremities worn. Photos clean, many with manuscript captions. Good plus. Photo album of assembled snapshots showing various parts of Japan, the Philippines, Alaska, Hawaii, and Washington state. The two larger images are of Snoqualmie Falls in Washington, the first showing the park area and the second showing the falls itself. The images appear to be in no particular order, with scenes from all the various locales dispersed throughout the album. Further photographs show scenes in Manila, including the "oldest church," a "Spanish transport sunk by Dewey" in the Spanish-American War, Fort Malata, other churches, some water buffalo, and other rural scenes in the area. Images of Honolulu include a group of school children, the palace, views in a park, and some rural scenes, including a waterfall. Images of Japan are primarily from Nagasaki, Kobe, and Osaka. They include views of the harbors and ships, the dry dock at Nagasaki, the lower and upper falls at Kobe, Japanese peddlers aboard a ship, "temple 2000 years old" at Nagasaki, and others. Views of Alaska are primarily taken from off the coast, showing Dutch Harbor from several angles. The transport ship Oopack is featured in several photos; the Oopack was a British merchant vessel that was sunk by the Germans in 1918, off the coast of Malta. Several un- labeled photos at the rear of the volume show what are presumably local scenes from home, likely the Pacific Northwest. There are to farmers plowing a field behind a horse, bathers at the seashore, picnickers, and other group photos. The picture post card is a baseball team group shot, and the colored images are views of Japan.
