Photo album with floral cloth cover decorated with red flowers and green leaves. The front cover also has a 3-D plastic brown rectangle with the words "Photo Album" written inside it. Inside the photo album, the pages are spiral bound, and hold the photos on a sticky surface covered with a protective plastic sheet. Due to the age of the album, much of the "sticky" doesn't hold the photos any more, and the plastic covers do not keep the photos in place either. Often the...

Harrison died), through 1877.  **Note: the cursive writing here makes the middle initial "R" look like a "B." There are two John B. Harrisons in Hood River and Idaho, but the birth and death dates don' match.  It appears that both...
