MYSTERY PHOTO ALBUM

GO TO THE PHOTOS


This is a small photo album that Special Collections recently acquired from a dealer. We know nothing about it, except what it discloses about itself: namely that it covers territory south of Cleveland, Ohio -- in the Kent/Akron area along the Cuyhoga River, Ohio & Erie Canal and nearby towns -- and that the photos were shot around 1897. Where something had been penciled in next to any of the photos, we have added it here in italics.

If you know this area well, you might be able to help pinpoint the locations of the photos better and perhaps even solve the mystery of who the family is, shown in these photos. Any documented information will be added to the site.
