Scope and Contents
Four photograph albums depicting travel and scenes of Nassau, Havana, Cuba, and Deal Beach, New Jersey where the photographer owned a cottage circa 1920's.  Each photograph is described in a few words on a label affixed under the picture.  Most of the pictures have a woman dressed in typical white dress smiling for the camera.  A few photographs have her labeled as Mrs. Fitch but no other indication is given of her name.  It is clear, however, that she is the focus of the albums.  Nassau pictures feature local children diving for coins and Bahamians in their living conditions in Nassau.  Of note in Nassau are photographs of a large silk cotton tree, Bay Street, the Colonial Hotel, Higgs Bathing Beach, Fox Hill, and Shirley Street.  Havana scenes the Road of Royal Palms, Barlow Cottage, Morro Castle.  Deal Beach photographs feature the a cottage near the beach and pictures of a women posing outside the Deal Casino.
