Scope and content
The album's images capture a wide range of subjects, including portraits, mountain and agricultural scenes, as well as residences, commercial buildings, and streetscapes from various towns. Although not all of the postcards possess captions or other information that identify the individuals or locales photographed, those that do are associated with southern Alberta or specific communities within the region. Images from Lethbridge, Cardston, Raymond, Magrath, and Waterton Lakes are all represented.
The 16 loose photographs generally capture individuals in various settings, although agricultural and logging scenes predominate. One image is of a mine or other industrial facility.
The front cover is completely detached from the binding, and the spine is significantly degraded.
