Hardcover. A photograph album of a young man's road tours with his friends in the area around Adelaide in the early 1900s. The snap shots are original gelatin silver prints, black and white images of great clarity, showing the young man and friends in two different convertible vehicles touring the countryside. In one image the car is parked just adjacent to a sign reading "Morphettville carriage entrance". Morphettville is a suburb to the south west of Adelaide. A close up of the young driver shows the spare tire mounted on the driver's door, and a squeeze bulb car horn with 3 trumpets mounted next to the steering wheel.
Great generic snap shots of cars, ferries, waterfronts, bridges, street scenes, signs, ferry crossings, seaside views, wharf with tall masted ships, bridges, zoo, botanical garden and young relatives. A great street shot of shops with signs reads "J. J. Walsh Fruiterer"; next door is a large establishment with "This is Mitchells Warehouse - "We have it", and further down the street, "E. W. Hanns". Ox drawn wagons are pulled up in front of the shops.
A total of 37 snap shots, 4 1/2 x 3 1/2". In a red cloth covered photograph album (7 x 6"), "Album" printed in black at front cover, with decorative printed border. Very good condition. Item #22698
