[Album of Portraits] Murer, Emma L.
An album of portraits taken at various studios throughout the United States, predominantly in Iowa. This album is from the estate of one Mr. Abramson, a former Consul General of the United States to Canada. The name Emma L. Murer appears in the front of the album, and she is believed to be the creator. It is likely that the album represents a large extended family; the connection to Abramson is unknown. Also included are an invitation to the wedding of Hattie Johnston to Joe Petty in August of 1883, and a card reading "Compliments of Mr. and Mrs. W.H. Ammonds, At Home, Wednesday Eve., Sept. 5th". The album spine is badly damaged, though the images are largely in very good shape.
