[Lousville, KY]: [ca. 1935]. Small 8vo. album. Approximately 7" x 5". Cloth covered boards, screw binding, opens vertically. 12 linen backed and hinged black and white photographs (each measuring approximately 5.75" x 4.5"). Moderate handling wear. Manuscript notes to versos of most prints. Ownership label to interior torn. Overall good-plus. (Item ID: 15964)

A pocket-sized photograph album carried by a 1930's-era delivery milkman of the Oscar Ewing and Sons Dairy Company of Louisville, KY. Scenes of production, testing, pasteurizing, bottling equipment and delivery in clear, well composed views. Linen backings to prints with the previous owner's notes, including customer orders of various dairy products, delivery frequency, address, etc... Delivery vehicle in one image appears to show a mid-1930's International panel truck, estimating the otherwise undated album to approximately 1935. A compact, though rich visual record of sales, dairy production, and the Depression-era South. Image of delivery driver with panel van held in The University of Kentucky's "Images of Kentucky and Environs" collection. Otherwise OCLC notes no holdings of similar album or individual prints.
