Detailed Description of the Collection

"Mormon Pilgrimage" Album, 1946

Mainly black-and-white silver gelatin prints, with some faded color snapshots. Some of these photographs were printed from slides. Unless otherwise noted, photographs were taken in 1946. As noted in the album, some photographs are also included in the material culture album. Following the album are loose prints that were tucked into the album; often, the album includes cropped, enlarged views from these prints. Note: The word "Mormon" was assumed in the decriptions here due to the title of the album; therefore, "Chapel" refers to a Mormon chapel.
