Scope and Content

Page of an album with four black and white photographs pasted on. All of different views of a crowd watching Easter celebrations in a town square [Finenze]. In each, a large structure outside a church or cathedral is decorated with flowers. In the top photograph it is surrounded by people in white church vestments, in the bottom photograph there appear to be four white cows. These are all viewed over the hats and heads of the crowd. The middle photograph is unclear as it has been double exposed. In the right photograph, taken from a different position, is an open topped carriage. The top photograph has a manuscript caption on the bottom white edge.
