This collection comprises a photograph album with 57 tipped-in black and white photographs documenting the building of the
Zupp family pool in Van Nuys, California. The photographs (each approximately 9 x 9 cm) and accompanying handwritten captions
document the process from start to finish, showing numerous steps including the excavation and shaping of the grounds, installation
of steel rods, and plastering. The album, titled "Our Pool from Start to Finish," illustrates the creation of a backyard
pool in the 1950s in a working class Southern California neighborhood.
