Album depicting a fun and busy American-style road trip that Prizza E. Levey (sp?) and his family took from Ludlow, Vermont out West, with 185 photographs. The album has a diaristic feel since many of the pages contain his handwritten notations, in white ink, with details about the excursion. Included is a two-part panorama of El Tovar by the Detroit Photographic Co., cowboys and steers, snaps of Native figures in the Grand Canyon, a view of Fremont and Party by Avdelotte, scenes of Levey and his family enjoying excursions into the desert and pictures of the natural landscape and vegetation in California and the Southwest. Silver prints, various sizes, most are 4x3 inches (10.2x7.6 cm.). Oblong 4to, suede, with unusual pyrograph cover. 1904
