Photograph Album

Collecting small photographs (called carte-de-visites) of famous people was very popular in the mid-1800s.  The Lincolns had several albums.   A family legend suggests that Abraham Lincoln gave Mary Todd an album before they were married.  It probably looked similar to this small, thick book.
