Some pages don't have headings. Photos are mounted as shown, with a few photos evidently missing but the vast majority present. One extra copy of one photo is loose. Wear to album as shown and marks here and there that look like old glue. Topics of photos are too numerous to list, but I've tried to give a representative samples in the limited space allowed here. Many truly amazing original images.
Album is roughly 9.5" x 14". It is in a somewhat fragile state and will be carefully packed for shipping.
