Notes:
All 18 photographs in the album depict an infant boy (?), with family members, including a woman and man who are presumably his parents. The child is frequently depicted in a pram. Six of the photographs are captioned in black ink on the verso. Some (or all) of the photographs appear to have been taken during family holidays, to Warley Moor, in West Yorkshire, and to the coast at Blackpool and vicinity. The family may have lived in West Yorkshire, given the travel locations and the stamp of A.A. Richards (Halifax) on the back cover.
The album is bound in faux alligator skin. The front cover is stamped in gold: "Snapshots"; the back cover: "A.A. Richards, The Studio, Kings Cross, Halifax."
