In and Around Sydney:

A Vintage Album of 28 Photoprints by Samuel Wood 1905-1920

This is a superb album collection of 28 one-to-a-page, vintage prints tipped in to an album with string binding. The photographs are reproduced on paper equivalent to 100 gsm and each contains a description of the scene it depicts. The album measures 11 x 8 inches and has a little wear to the outside cover edges but is otherwise in very good condition with each photograph – except those at the beginning and end (as original) - still separated by the original tissue guards. All the prints are in very good condition and unmarked, each measuring 7 ½ x 5 ½ inches.

From the ships and clothing shown in the images, the images date over a period from 1905 to the 1920’s. Interestingly, the album was printed in Prussia.
