Series XI. Photographs, 1881-1882, 1885-1888

Scope and Content Notes:

This series contains 155 photographs in five albums taken by Edith Dennison Darlington Ammon and her brother, O'Hara Darlington, from 1885 through 1888. The photographs document family, friends, leisure activities, and the artistic approach to photography shared by Edith and O'Hara. Most of the photographs are taken in and around the family home, Guyasuta, and the surrounding area. The fifth album in this collection contains photographs from the Pittsburgh Amateur Photographers' Society, a social club founded in 1885 in which Edith and O'Hara actively participated. All the photo albums are scanned and available online.

The series also comprises two scrapbooks containing photographs and other memorabilia documenting the Darlington family trip to Constantinople, Greece, Italy and Egypt in 1881-1882.
