During his life, William Vaughn Tupper (1835–1898) created scrapbooks to document his travels. This collection of 46 scrapbooks contains annotated photographs and drawings from the Tupper Family’s travels in Great Britain, Europe, and North Africa from 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.
