Hand painted leather souvenirs were popular in Yellowstone National Park gift shops in the 1930s. This 8-1/2 by 5-3/4 inch sueded leather photograph album is from that time period, with a handpainted scene of a bear cub hugging a tree - the unofficial mascot of Yellowstone in the 1920s and 1930s.
Inside are 21 sheets of heavy black paper, all unused with no evidence of tape or photo mounts. The back is cardboard backed leather. Some of the corners have bends as shown, one corner at the back lower left is almost detached. The covers have a few minor, light storage scuffs.
