Summary expansion
The album contains 12 cabinet card photographs (17 x 11 cm), which consist of a paper photograph mounted on a thick cardboard mount having gilt beveled edges, rounded corners, and photographer studio advertisements on verso, each of which is slipped into a sleeve on recto and verso of each album leaf, in which a gilt-framed window has been cut. The 12 carte-de-visite photographs (10 x 7 cm), smaller, lighter versions of the cabinet cards, are viewed in similar fashion, through smaller frames, cut two to a page. Six of the cabinet cards are composite "class" photographs for the years 1881, 1884, 1885, 1886, and 1891-1892, containing small photographic portraits of faculty surrounded by smaller photos of each of the "senior ladies" of each class. (A second class photo for 1891-1892 shows the "senior men" for that year.) There are also three group photographs, and large and small photographs of individual teachers and students. Sixteen of the frames are empty. Verso of front endpaper contains the printed presentation inscription: "Presented to John Adams Esq., M.A., B. Sc., F.C.P. by the Senior Ladies as a token of affection and esteem. 1892." Studios represented by the photographs include those of John MacMahon, James Ewing, E. Geering, A. Adams, W.B. Anderson, and J.W. Wilson & Co. of Aberdeen; Benjamin Wohlgemuth of Glasgow; and R. Milne of Aboyne
