[Six Photographs on a Scrapbook Page]

Description:

Page from the red Mammie V. Bartholomew album displaying six sepia-tone prints. In the top left is a 6 x 10 cm. print of an infant in a dress sitting in a rocking chair and holding the arms of the chair. To the right (proceeding clockwise) is a 17 x 12 cm. photo of several sheaves of grain in a pasture. In the lower right-hand corner of the photo is a wooden fence. Rolling hills and sky form the background of the image. Below this photo (in the center of the page) is a 14 x 10 cm. photo of what might be a columbine plant and flower behind chicken wire. The next photo (14 x 10 cm.) shows Mrs. N. L. Bartholomew sitting on the end of a wooden walkway built over a flooded creek. To her right are a young boy and girl standing on the walkway. In the bottom left corner of the page is a portrait (10 x 14 cm.) of Mr. and Mrs. (Susan Emily "Aunt Sister" Reynolds) N. L. Bartholomew taken in front of a printed backdrop. Mr. N. L. Bartholomew is standing behind a chair where his wife is sitting. Proceeding clockwise, above this photo is a hazy photograph of a man standing on on the banks of a flooded creek.
