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.
