Mostly San Antonio, Texas. [1880s-1890s]. Large octavo album (81/2" x 101/2"). Cloth and celluloid album with heart shaped mirror glued to front board. 16 thick cardboard leaves with 12 cabinet cards inserted, all but one measure approximately 61/2" x 41/4". Album is near very good minus, shaken but holding, leaves toned and lightly foxed, the cards have been removed at some point with resultant chips and tears. Photos generally very good, five with abrasions affecting image.An interesting collection of cabinet cards featuring African-Americans, mostly taken in San Antonio, Texas. Blacks made up 1/2 of the population of San Antonio in the 1890s. Considering the vast majority were relegated to unskilled labor positions, images of well-off African-Americans from this place and era are uncommon. Seldom encountered and desirable despite some condition issues. . (Inventory #: 411878)
