Album with 50 CDVs and 5 Cabinet Cards.


1) CDV. 3 firefighters. The two that are standing have the number 1 on their belts. The fireman at left holds a bucket that also has the number 1 on it. The fireman at right has what looks like crossed ladders on his hat. Backmark: Olsen of Shreveport. Great content.

2) CDV. Man with amputated leg and his wife. Also Shreveport.

3) CDV. Handwritten at bottom of front: "Three of 'em" and "United we stand." Presumably firefighters. Shreveport photographer.

4) CDV. Young woman, both have bottleneck curls. One may work for the other, as she holds a small brush. No location.

5) CDV. Advertising card for Jacob Shafter, No. 628 N. Second Street, Phila. Jacob Shaffer was a photographer in Philadelphia.

6) CDV. Boy with walking stick. (Blind?) No backmark.

7) Cabinet Card. Baton Rouge lady.

8) Cabinet Card. Dallas, Texas boy.

Most of the rest is Shreveport, with a bit of New Orleans thrown in. The rest of the photographs are mostly portraits of family members.
