Table of contents What's This?
The poems are hand-lettered in black ink on gold or silver foil panels. These are pasted on the album pages above and below the photographs. Poem titles, supplied by their author, are given below in quotation marks. C.R. Savage has also supplied titles for his photos.
Rev. John E. Hurlbut was a Congregationalist minister who lived for at least one year in Salt Lake City, Utah (1888). While there, he wrote several poems evocative of the city and its environs and incorporated the former in an album together with photos of the area by Charles Roscoe Savage and an unknown photo-grapher---possibly Hurlbut himself. On the last album page is the photo of a bearded man on horseback; this may be a photo of John E. Hurlbut.
