Strolling around the Sandwich, Massachusetts Bazaar Flea Market on a Wednesday morning in September 2021, I spotted a large book across the way on a seller’s table. An avid collector of ephemera, I hustled over to the table to examine the item.

The book, which turned out to be a photo album, was about 2 inches thick and the old brown leather cover was crumbling. Opening the cover, I was amazed to find page after page of cabinet cards of people about the same age. After carefully removing several to inspect them, I asked the seller for the price. He said $40 US; I offered him $30 US, he accepted, and I headed to the car with my treasure.
