Description
Album and negatives depict a couple's travels circa 1900, including visits to the Exposition Universelle in Paris, the London Zoo, Venice, and Egypt, as well as family snapshots believed to be made in Long Island, New York.
Background
The photographs in this album are believed to have been made by Louis Albert Sayre Bodine, based on annotations written on the negatives' original box. Louis Bodine (1874-1936) was born in New York, and resided for a time in East Hampton, Long Island. Circa 1899, he married Winifred Harrison (1877-1960), apparently known affectionately as "Harry." The couple had two children, John (1902-1970) and Natalie (1904-1995). At least one of these children is depicted in some family photographs, but only identified as "baby."
Extent
approximately 245 negatives and 50 photographic prints (1 box; 1 album)
