Ernest Bobbitt Bourland’s photo album (ca. 1899-1900)

July 8, 2010

One of my four Great-Grandfathers was Ernest Bobbitt Bourland (1875-1949). E.B. was a minister from various cities around Lexington, Kentucky. He and his wife had one child: my father’s father.

My parents recently gave me this book and I decided to scan it and make it available. The music is from my FOUR PAINTERS: Thomas Hart Benton (2001) for piano quartet by Roger Bourland (me).

what a charming and delightful series of vignettes. i just sent a friend who lives in Nicholasville KY the link.
How/where did you get the album scanned? I’d love to try it on family albums.

Thanks Charlotte! I scanned and assembled this myself using iPhoto and iTunes with a Canon 4400f scanner.
