1899-1905 photo album featuring 10 year old Helen's trip Montreal - Europe, Swiss Alps, Low Countries, England, Paris, Rhine

Album measures 6 inches wide, with over 70 photos, the best of them feature a girl around 10 named Helen boldly staring at the camera in the Swiss Alps, notably Andermatt, Ragatz, and near the Matterhorn; the shipboard photos are excellent -- the SS Rotterdam and the SS Virginian -- including a great photo of a potato sack race down a deck, visiting the steerage, etc. Another striking photo is taken at Arthur's Seat, an extinct volcano near Edinburgh. There are a few of the St. Louis Exposition of 1904 and a couple from NYC showing Dewey's Arch (Madison Square) under construction. Helen's mother, identified only as MCW, also features heavily in this, but we don't know her name. Her father is only pictured in one photo, a tiny blip in the distance. This is an album about a fearless girl -- and the only person fully named in here is her doll, Ada Fontaine. Two of the photos were taken by Mr. Charles Kurtz, an art critic and assistant director for fine arts of the United States at the Paris Exposition of 1900. Some photos loose. Very Good. Item #H8742
