Tupper Scrapbook Collection

During his life, William Vaughn Tupper (1835-1898) created scrapbooks to document his travels. This collection of 46 scrapbooks contains nearly 2,000 annotated photographs and drawings from the Tupper family's travels in Great Britain, Europe, and North Africa between 1891-1894. Most of the photographs appear to have been purchased by the travelers at major stopping-places and sites. They reveal the business that local photographers did with well-to-do travelers making a grand tour.

Online access: Selections from the Tupper Scrapbook collection are available in the BPL's online collections.
