About this collection
1 album (ca. 100 photographic prints): albumen. Album of ca. 100 albumen photographic prints taken from 1861 to 1865 and printed later. Images include Navy ships and sailors during the blockade of southern ports; army camps; Edisto Island, South Carolina; plantations and African Americans; Fort Warren, Massachusetts; and Andersonville Prison, Georgia. Many of the Edisto Island photographs were taken by Henry P. Moore of New Hampshire. This album is vol. 20 from a 31 volume set of photograph albums compiled by Arnold A. Rand and Albert Ordway. They created a number of such sets throughout the 1880s and into the 20th century, using their personal collection of approximately 4,000 negatives as the source for the album prints. This album remains in its original half-leather with blue-green fabric binding, blue-green marbled end sheets, and gold-lettered spines. The photos are mounted on light blue boards with red trim and described in ink on the mount.
