30 loose photos, creator unknown
Advertised on eBay as "Lesbian Interest, Old Photo Album All Women," the album is indeed entirely photographs of girls and women, both young and old, dating from circa 1910-1957. Their relationships are unknown. Ten photos are of two women together. Others are possibly mothers and daughters, grandmothers and daughters, and groups of friends, as well as photos of individuals. They are mostly informal shots; just a few are studio portraits. One is marked "Black's Studio, Wewoka, Okla." Names are written on the back of only a few photographs. They are: Mary L. Irwin, Jan Rorke?, and Mrs. Brenner.
