This was discovered along with some WW1 items in a box of my Dad's (SEE WW1 BOLO/HELMET/PHOTOS) also from Pa. These are obviously from a much earlier era as there are references to some subjects serving in Union Civil War Companies (78th PA) there is a contents page at the front that gives great details on the individuals included in the album. There is a total of 31 photos with 15 of them named and several with place and/or names written underneath. By all standards these would have been "rich folk" to have had so many photos taken, the book itself would have been an investment. Hand tooled leather with metal clasps (1 missing).The photos show great detail into the dress and hairstyles of the day. It seems that Robert Elliot a resident of AVENUE was at Hite Station where he had gone to visit his daughter. The various tin, dagero, and paper photos tell a story of this Pennsylvania Family. A great project to undertake with some very precise clues to work from. I always thought I would take this on after retirement.
