Description
 
A quaint friendship album with a unique cover: a wooden front cov erand a red velvet back cover. The album contains signatures mostly from Catskill, New York in 1893, with others from Eminence, NY. The center pages are signed H.H.S. 1904, which most liklely stands for Hobart High School. The first page is signed Miss Cora Huyck and three pages toward the end of album are addressed to "Cora". While most of the pages are simply signed with a date and location noted, several have verses or short notes on them. Two pages are of note, as they contain whimsical color drawings. One depicts a sailboat on a lake, and the other a calligraphy bird surrounded by flora. Color flourishes. 4 1/2" x 6 1/4". The velvet back cover shows slight wear, particular along the edge, otherwise in great condition.
