André Charlot Life Story Vol. 1 Before 1882

Scope and Content

This binder contains photographs and memorabilia from Charlot's family. This includes a preamble to his "Life Story", "Milestones and Pebbles" family history and a brief chronology of his life and work. There is then a section entitled "Before 1882 My parents", which include press cuttings; handwritten notes on family members, friends/staff, and places/events (including his first cigarette and trips to London); letters; photographs of Charlot, his family members and his home; Charlot's parents' wedding invitation and his baptism invitation. It concludes with a "Prelude to Life" chapter. While the majority of content and events are before 1882, a few photographs of family and friends date later.
