The photographs present the metal truss design of bridges built by the King Iron Bridge Company in various places in the 1880s. The trade cards promoting patent medicines and perfume and the calling cards display the beautiful art of the chromolithograph printing process. The scrapbook seems to represent a popular Victorian Era...
