Chicago: np, [ca. 1930-1959]. First Edition. Oblong 8vo. Commercial strong-bound album. Vinyl covered boards. 145 black and white; 4 color photographs verso and recto mounted to 23 black paper leaves, one or two elements loosely laid in. Front cover detached, but archivally mended. Edgewear to pages. Images generally clean, well preserved. A few prints perished. Overall very good. (Item ID: 15234)

Original photograph album of the Zagar family of Chicago, focusing primarily on their daughter, Margaret Ann (b. 1936), and covering primarily the 1940's. Most prints snapshot in size, though notably several enlargements appear as well, including 4 class photographs between 1942-1950 from the Gompers School for the Handicapped on the city's South side at 123rd. and State St. Margaret Ann was apparently stricken with Polio at an early age, as early as 2 years old according to photograph dates, and her development is chronicled in detail, into young adulthood, closing with images of her in a wheelchair in December 1954. The images between present a rich visual archive of growing up with the disease.
