This album documents a couple's honeymoon voyage across the Atlantic and back aboard the United States Lines cargo liners SS President Garfield and SS President Van Buren as well as their lengthy stays in France, mostly Paris but other places as well, and Switzerland. A well-written trip narrative accompanies the photographs which, though vernacular, are well done; many appear quite professional. Images include street scenes, famous buildings and landmarks, the countryside, a few of the honeymooners, and more. Some of the photographs of the Swiss Alps are exceptionally nice.
