2. (Genealogy.) Malloy/Rankin family album, (issued by McKnight & Rutter, Philadelphia) ; 23 cdv photographs, mostly identified, some apparently signed on the image or mount; some with revenue stamps. Pennsylvania photographers, including J. W. Rothwell, Photographer, and Painter, Washington, Pa. Full leather, gilt emblem, blind stamping; 2 clasps, 1 missing. Distressed album but still presentable, with genealogically important notations-- a few images cropped.
