Bevelled Mirror Victorian Album #1

Bevelled Mirror Victorian Album #1
I bought this a few weekends ago. It was the same place I bought the "Woolly Twins" in Essex, Vermont, and normally I would never buy something that cost $62. I'm not cheap just usually broke. : )
Anyway, it was on sale, and has 49 photos and 10 tintypes. There are some very, very cool ones - and a lot that, to be honest, I would never buy singly. But I guess that's the way with bulk purchases. Right?
I've never seen one like this - on a stand - although I'm sure you professional buyers have seen many. In the creases you can see it was a deep red velvet. It has a patent for 1883 and it looks like late 80s and 90s photographs.
Anyway - my new set:
The Bevelled Mirror Victorian Album.
I'll just post them randomly though. I'm too fickle to tackle them all. When I did that with "Jessie's Barn Photos" it drove me crazy - but I'll identify them as they go up.
The dealer told me it came from Isle La Motte, in northwestern Vermont, but most of the identified ones are in Massachusetts or Rhode Island or Quebec. They appear to be a Catholic family, most likely French Canadian.

Thanks for checking it out, Angelica, and for your comments. The photos are certainly a mix of cool and mediocre - but I agree, (although I rarely do it) you sometimes have to buy the whole enchilada to get the gems - in a mixed metaphor sort of way. : )
