Scope and content

Photo-book one is a faded black/brown photograph book bound by two holes punched through the cover and a braided cord. The pages inside are mostly intact, but are either separated or in the process of separation from their binding. Most pictures are labelled by the original owners and detail the dates and persons of interest in their pictures themselves. Subjects of interests include Bill Gieser, John Claiche, Annie Gieser, Bertha Koller, Bill Christensen, Ruth Rhinesmith, Arthur and Mary Rogers, Mary St. Peter, Mr./Mrs. Baud, Mr./Mrs. Mizen, various unlisted subjects, scenery, house fires, the Gieser house, and others. The provided range of dates are 1913-1921, but probably range up until 1930 due to the age progression of some of the subjects. Tissue paper was placed in between the pages to help delay the deterioration of the pages due to age and the acidity of the paper and adhesives used on the photographs.
