The Waterbury Paper Box Co. Wedding Album 34



And with this one, this album is done.  But why is what appears to be the oldest photo in the album on the last page?  If only someone had captioned the photographs.

The Waterbury Paper Box Co. Wedding Album 32



This one's odd because it's so clearly from a different era than most of the other photos.  And why so many wedding photos?

The Waterbury Paper Box Co. Wedding Album 31



Another Girl's Club costume party, but this time the photographer had a few problems with his (or her) lighting.  I wrote his because at the time this photo was taken a professional photographer would almost certainly have been male.  But then again, it was a girl's club, so maybe the effort was made to find a woman photographer.

The Waterbury Paper Box Co. Wedding Album 30



It's time to start the final push on the Waterbury photo album.  There are five more pages to go, and I won't take any more breaks until they're all posted.  Not every photo in the album is a wedding photo, but it seems right that this final sequence starts with a bride.

Views of the World, Canal, Amsterdam, Holland



Think Holland and you think canals or tulips.  I suspect it would have been too hard for some poor colorist to go in and do thousands of tulips.

I'll return to more postcards from this collection in about a month,give or take.  In the mean time, click on Views of the World in labels at the bottom of the post to see more.

Views of the World, Falls of the Rhine, Switzerland



The Falls of the Rhine, the upper Rhine, is near the town of Schaffausen,Switzerland.  It's 450 feet wide, 75 feet wide, and the highest plain falls in Europe.  Now I have no idea what a plain falls is.  I tried looking it up, and believe it or not, I didn't find an answer.  Of course, I only scrolled back through the first four pages of the Google search.  Not very ambitious, but hey, I was just too lazy to keep searching.
