The 2017 New England Journal of Photographic History, #175. Contents include: “Myself and Her Grand Tour Travel Album,” a unique 1889 album of captioned early Kodak snapshots and commercial travel photographs. The album documents the 80-day, an 11,900-mile journey of four unmarried women: Cora, Harriet, June, and ‘Myself,’ the album’s curator and photographer. Written by Ron Polito.

“The Wondrous and Eclectic Brandeis Castle,” featuring newly-discovered historic photographs of this iconic structure, authored by Brandeis University Archivist Maggie McNeely; “Taking a Stand on Architectural Photography,” an essay by noted architectural photographer Peter Vanderwarker; plus “Boston Cityscapes and the Black Albums,” and a brief introduction to “T.E. Marr (& Son): Mrs. Gardner’s Photographers,” both by Ron Polito.
