Dawson of To-day. Leading Business Firms Recommended to the Public. 1901. Limited edition photographic album containing 33 original contact printed photographs of carious Dawson businesses of 1901. The mounted photographs are captioned with short typeset paper inserts giving business location and other valuable details. Because of a dismantled binding, the exact sequence as well as the original total number of photographs cannot be ascertained without comparison to an intact portfolio.
