Seller: diaries (7,697) 100%, Location: Issaquah, Washington, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 401556475986 WELCOME TO SALLY’S DIARIES: This is an incredible travel photo album from a trip taken in 1935. There are a total of 198 photos and almost all of them have handwritten identification on the back stating where they were taken. One of the photos also lists the names of three of the women on the trip: Sally Macleod, Jane Morris and Ellenor Morris. And then a few show the women on board an ocean liner named the Berengaria. I am so glad they wrote on the back of the photos because I actually found the passenger list on the web which lists two of the women’s name and when they got back to New York. It lists Sally Hollingsworth Macleod who was born in 1916 in Westwood Massachusetts and now living in Berwyn Pennsylvania. It also lists Ellenor Morris who was born in Berwyn Pennsylvania in 1905 and she is still living there. I didn’t see a Jane Morris but there was a Constance Irene Morris from Chicago. Not sure if Constance goes by the name of Jane or if Jane did not sail back home to the states. But upon closer inspection it looks like she was suppose to sail to the US but her name is crossed out and a note says she is not on board. It looks like Sally’s parents were Conrad Macleod and Mary Paul Morris so I’m assuming the two women she is with are possibly her cousins. Then I found her obituary on line and it says she graduated from the Agnes Irwin School in Philadelphia in 1933. She married Robert Biddle. They spent many vacations on Squam Lake in New Hampshire where Sally had summered since she was nine. In 1968 Rob and Sally built the “Squam House” near Center Sandwich overlooking the lake and mountains. She was involved in local politics and also local preservation. She helped to preserve the tiny village of “Historic Falsington” in lower Makefield Township where William Penn attended Quaker Meetings. I also saw her on several passenger lists so she was an extensive traveler. I started to look up the other two women but there is so much to this family that I thought it best to stop here. All of the photos are original and they are amazing. I’ve listed some of the places represented in this album and they are in no particular order: Trafalgar Square, Gibraltar looking at it from the deck of a ship (great view of the people on the deck), Arab Mosque on top of the Mount of Olives, Algeria (showing several street scenes and some long distance from a boat and some birds eye views), The monastery and hotel Mountserrat from the head of the funicular, Villfranche, La Turbie from La Grande Corniche (several), Then several from Athens: Erechtheion, Arch of Hadrian, An ancient Roman market, the Acropolis from the Temple of Jupiter, Parthenon, Porch of the Maidens, Theatre of Dionysus, The Water Clock, The Stadium, Promenade des Anglais in Nice, Santa Sophie and Blue Mosque Istanbul, Summer Palace Bosphorus (actually several in Bosphorus and Rhodes). Next several in Jerusalem: Dome of the Rock, fabulous one of the Hotel Fast, Damascus Gate. Then Egypt (quite a few of these): The Sphinx, Luxor from the Thebes, Temple of Karnak, Colossus of Memnon, Ramesseum Ward, Entrance of a tomb in the Valley of the Queens, A dragoman in the Valley of the Kings, Temple of Zehe. Eight of Pompeii. Several from Amalfi. Several from Kenilworth Castle, Lake at Snowden, several of Caernarfon Castle Wales, several from Sty Head Pass, several of Grasmere. Then there are quite a few different Abby’s and Castles in Scotland, Hatfield House in England, several of the Jubilee Procession from outside their window in Piccadilly Square and one shows a long shot of the Duke and Duchess of Kent. One shipboard photo of them playing tennis on board the Berengaria. There are so many more that I haven’t mentioned. Most of the photos can be removed from their mounts but a few, maybe 20, are adhered with some kind of tape on the back on one of the corners so they can still be lifted up to see the writing. Each photo measures about 2 1/4” x 3 1/4” and the album itself measures about 8 1/2” x 10 1/2”. The album and photos are in good shape.
