1929/1930 "Snap Shot" photograph album containing 42 photographs that belonged to Emilia Jane Waymouth (1906-2002), "Emily", a native of Puerto Rico, who moved to New York City around 1930. This album is labeled "No III".
The album dates from about a decade before Emily married Edward Schmidt (1915-1995), a native of Brooklyn, New York.
The album, which measures approximately 8" by 6", is missing the back cover, plus possibly a page or more. The photographs range in size from 5-1/2" by 3-1/4" to 4-1/4" by 2-1/2" down to 2-3/4" by 2".
