Collection description:
The collection consists of a photograph album by someone who presumably lived in Anchorage in the 1950s. The album, with illustrated Alaska cover, contains 44 black and white prints, a birthday card, and a single page of newspaper clippings. Subjects of the photographs include: people, particularly women and children, in a Spenard neighborhood; a woman and two young girls recreating at an area lake; and people at the Anchorage International Airport. The birthday card is from a mother to her daughter. The newspaper clippings include: the masthead for the Anchorage Daily Times for October 28, 1953; a photo portrait of DeMar Long with caption announcing him as the new leader of the Antlers Club; the almanac entry for the day giving daylight hours and yesterday’s temperatures; and a photograph of Donald Novis and Bonnie Stephens, local performers from a vaudeville show benefiting crippled children held at the Elks ballroom, dated October 8, 1953.
