[Scrapbook Page with Photos of Swollen Rivers, People, and an Illustrated Forest Scene]

Description: Scrapbook page from the red Mammie V. Bartholomew album displaying five sepia-tone prints and one color card. On the left side of the page are four photographs. Proceeding from top to bottom, the first is a 17 x 12 centimeter photo of what might be Lambshead creek in a flood. The ranch gate is visible on the left bank of the creek. Below this is a photo of the same size of a creek near Albany, Texas. A young boy is standing in the center of the photo by the water among the brush lining the banks. On the left in the distance are three adults standing on a walkway built over the creek. In the bottom left corner of the page is a family portrait (10 x 14 centimeters) of Mrs. Gustie and three children taken on a porch. To the right of this photo is a portrait (10 x 14 centimeters) of Archie and Benson Campbell. The boys are standing in front of a printed backdrop and next to a table covered by a flowery cloth. They are both wearing knickers and bow ties. In the top right corner of the page is a 8 x 10 centimeter portrait of an infant lying on an "eye dazzler" Navajo rug. Below this a 8 x 16 centimeter card on which a color nature scene has been painted. The phrase "In Christ shall all be made alive" is written on the bottom of the card.
