Early 1900s Photograph Album of the Libby Family of Portland, Maine


Early 1900s photograph album, with hundreds of photographs, that appears to have belonged to the Libby family of 552 Cumberland Avenue, Portland, Maine.  It was perhaps started by Helen Maud Libby, daughter of Charles Bacon Libby and Grace (Stoddard) Libby.

The album measures about 13-1/2" by 10" and has over 100 pages, with as many as six photographs on a page; most pages have five or six.  The photographs depict family, sorority members, fellow members of the Business and Professional Women's Club; trips across the United States and Canada and Bermuda and a lengthy tour of Europe.

There's a label on the front cover: Alice White, 67 Hayden Street, South Portland, Maine 04106.  Zip Codes came into use in the 1960s, so this album apparently passed into Alice's hands long after it was filled.

At the end of this post are an alphabetical list of names and a description of many of the photographs in page order.

Below, some of the BPW group photographed in Paris:



Helen Maud Libby's mother, Grace (Stoddard) Libby, was the daughter of Ebenezer Emerson Stoddard and Rebecca Elizabeth (Gilson) Stoddard of Machias, Maine.  Below, a photograph of Rebecca Elizabeth (Gilson) Stoddard, "Mother Stoddard", with Aunt Maggie.


The Libby family made periodic trips to the Machias, Maine, area; many photographs show family members; scenes and people at Roque Bluffs, Maine, and scenery around Machias, including several photographs of decorated cars, floats and doll carriages in a parade, presumably a Fourth of July parade.

Below, the car decorated by the members of the Hannah Weston Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution:


Below, a photograph of Lee Longfellow:


Below, the Bagley family at Roque Bluffs:


Many photographs deal with military matters, including parades held during the commemoration of the centennial of Maine statehood held from June 26-July 5, 1920 and on Armistice Day in 1919.  Among the participants photographed in the former parade are General Jack Pershing; Colonel Frank M. Hume and Maine soprano Emma Eames.  Below, General Pershing:


Several countries sent ships to Maine for the commemoration of the centennial of statehood.  The photographs below show the Japanese ship Kasuga [misspelled on the photograph]; and one of its officer with a woman, who may have been the wife of Bill McKay, whose name is mentioned on the page, but whose photograph is missing.



Several photographs show a man in uniform photographed on Armistice Day in 1919; the name Libby is written on the reverse.  He may have been Seth Emerson Libby, Sr., son of Charles Bacon Libby and Grace (Stoddard) Libby.


Another photograph shows a sailor and another man, who are, I believe, Malcolm H. McLauchlan and his brother Neil Stoddard McLauchlan of Machias, Maine.



Among the several photographs of the National Guard encampment at Bangor, Maine:


One interesting photograph shows the Church homestead at Naples, Maine, with Bayard Alfred Church; his wife Carrie May (Thedgar) Church; son Conrad Nathaniel Church, a Michigan newspaper publisher; and Conrad's wife Lucille L. (Frinker) Church.  Bayard's mother, Cordelia A. (Hasty) Church, was a sister of Georgianna (Hasty) Church, who married Charles Sylvester Libby, Helen Maud Libby's paternal grandfather.
