This book requires conservation ,has seen better days, [but hey 105 years old],some pages are loose in the album ,the cover is tatty and not now bound so needs to be stabilized. The pages at some stage have been damp and need again care in handling. the pages at the back of this need care ,some contents small cards were adhesed and have been pulled out, There are other names, I suspect all ladies, relate to men in book.
