Description - 1910 by William H. Bollman
The Vintage Photo Album Series(TM) of books is quite unique. Most photo books about historical places provide photos taken over many years, some old, some more recent, and most photos having been published before. Each book in the Vintage Photo Album Series(TM) instead explores an extraordinary amateur vintage photo album of photos generally from ONE year, of a given location, trip or subject, and always having never been published before. Every vintage photo album tells its own unique story; the older the photo album the more challenging it is to uncover the details of its story. Almena was only 22, living in the Bloomingdale neighborhood of Washington, DC, when she photographed her exploits during the summer of 1910, including a ride on Abraham Lincoln's steamer River Queen to COLONIAL BEACH; a visit to the OLD SOLDIER'S HOME; POTOMAC PARK; GLEN ECHO; HARPERS FERRY and the original HILLTOP HOUSE; JEFFERSON ROCK; GREAT FALLS; GERMANTOWN; RIVERSIDE; ANTIETAM BATTLEFIELD; and EFTON HILLS; and a ride on the steamer Charles Macalester to MARSHALL HALL. We also discover why so many Washingtonians have family in Maine - it's because of the Civil War. Almena's father left Maine to server "in defense of Washington, DC," stayed following the Civil War, fell in love and lived happily ever after! Almena visited Maine in 1910, including the wharf on PEAKS ISLAND; CAPE ELIZABETH and POND COVER; she took a schooner to SHORES ISLAND, viewed the coal fleet off FORT WILLIAMS PARK; and traveled to SOUTH PORTLAND; WILLARD BEACH; COLUMBIA; and JONESPORT. Almena left us a treasure trove of vintage photos presented in a unique way - all from 1910.
