Summary:
Amateur snapshots of people and places, processed by commercial photofinishers. Typical range of snapshot subjects, such as a wedding group, informal portraits, including people with automobiles, landscapes and waterfalls (including the Temperance River and Gooseberry Falls), and a costume party. Some prints are hand-colored. Some identified in pencil on verso. The dates 1936 and 1937 are included on some, and some are identified as processed by Brown Photo Service, Minneapolis, Minn., and La Crosse Film Service, Wisconsin, so possibly many of the subjects are in Minnesota and Wisconsin.
