On offer is an interesting original photo journal created and compiled by Reverend Alex D. Riccio as he states on the first page wherein he has drawn the words, "1930-1934 Remembrances of my stay in Europe Rev. Alex D. Riccio." In all there are approximately 184 photos [all original save for a handful of real photo postcards] all dated between 1930 - 1934. The first 133 photos are exactly that and one sees immediately the trip was a religious 'Grand Tour' as there are many photos of Catholic priests and students at a particular seminary in what is most certainly Italy. The names Cascine and Cortile (Cortale) are written on some of the photos. He also visits Jerusalem and Egypt with photos from those places also. Some other inscriptions include: "Avro from window; waiters at Council dinner taken in Cortile; Church of St. Claire Assisi; Feast of St. Magdalene; St. Paul's Rome; Facade of Holy Sepulcher; Mount Tabor; Unity of cars before entering into Jerusalem; Inside view of Mosque; Valley of Jehoshaphat; Mosque of Omar; Pyramids of Cairo; Garden of Olives; On board ship Palestine; Bethlehem" and many, many more. In a later part of the album are 51 more photos: a number of wedding photos but 17 of them show the results of the great flood of 1936. I believe most of them are taken of the state of Maine, possibly Portland, Middletown and Cromwell. Some of these are also marked on the back. Many are rather incredible photos too. Most of the photos in this particular album are NOT glued in but placed in the album using the four corner mounts. Most of the photos are black and white and in good shape. The album itself as far as the pages and binding is in great shape but the cover is in bad shape. It is very worn around the edges and has fallen away from the binding. The leather cover features a super art deco design. It measures about 8" x 10 ¾". [Please note: this is one of two photo albums compiled by Riccio. The related album is specific to his time at Fordham University. SELLER ID 0001743]
