Notes
Content: According to Pierre Apraxine, the album is the "collection of 19 book pages of a disbounded album (no cover) consisting of 24 albumen prints in two sizes... on mounts with gilded frames. Small prints are two to a mount, with pasted printed titles and the signature of the photographer imprinted on the lower right corner: Ya. Leitsinger. Views of the city of Kola [in Murmanskaya oblast], sites of the Pechenskii Monastery, factories, camps, churches, and hospitals of various camps. Harbor installations; 2 group portraits of Lapps. Good documentation on rather primitive installations on the border with Norway. Prints of fine quality. A very good image of a Lapp family. Good condition of prints and mounts. The date is suggested by the appearance of the prints."
