An interesting archive of original gravestone photographs.

ca. 1940s.

An interesting archive of b/w photographs of gravestones, each number-keyed to a descriptive typescript. The stones were chosen for some item of interest -early stones, stones with unusual or striking epitaphs, and so on. A very interesting, and obviously unique, privately assembled collection. In almost all cases the town & state of the cemetery is identified. There is a handwritten note on the typescript dated 1949.

Approximately 171 original 5"x7", b/w photographs of gravestones from various parts of the country. Contained in a cardboard box, with 8 pages of typescript numbering and briefly describing each photo. Photos curled, several with some damage. Typescript browned and brittle.
