Antique Photo Album – C.M. Carter, Crawford, Collins, Perry, Van Ausdal

Blue Victorian Clasp type photo album falling apart. Was purchased online January 2011 from Broken Arrow, Ok.  I was told it came from an Estate Sale.

Has inscription in front of album that reads ” Vichy, Mo  “

Presented to C.M. Carter by his mother May 28, 1891. Most of the marked photos came from Missouri.

One photo is about to fall apart, pieces are just flaking off and I’m afraid to even move it so I don’t think the photo will last so I have made sure to take several photos to at least have it preserved in some form. This is the photo of the man below.
