A "Mason Auto Photograph Album" patented in 1862. My research indicates that this was assembled around 1866 following the passing of young Darwin Gano at age 23. Elbridge named a son after him, who grew up to be a prominent Rochester attorney who wrote several legal books.
Families also include Owen, Backus, Wickes, Taylor, Curtis, Van Allen, Sunderlin, and Gulick. See my separate soldier CDV listings!
