Overview and metadata sections

It is possible that E.A. Hemmenway was a draughtsman living in Boston in the 1890s. Otherwise, no information about the creator is known.

This photo album documents a trip to Europe in 1891. The album is dedicated to R.C. and C.B. Humphreys from E.A. Hemmenway. Each page of the album contains four albumen photographs with a hand-written description beneath. The album begins on the S.S. Waesland with many images of the passangers and crew. In Europe, Hemmenway visits Antwerp, Brussles, Cologne, Heidelberg, Baden-Baden, Pisa, Paris, London, Stratford, Chester, and Liverpool, as well as traveling down the Rhine by boat. The album closes with photographs of the city. In Europe, most the photographs are of sights and buildings rather than people.

The photographs in the album were arranged by the creator.

A Trip to Europe photo album was donated to Special Collections, Haverford College in December, 2011 by Thomas H. Garver.
