Scope and Content Note

Album contains photographs taken by Helen Clay Frick during her family's 1905 trip abroad. Images in the album were predominantly taken in France, Switzerland, and Germany, and include views of Versailles, Fontainebleau, Lake Geneva, Zurich, Baden-Baden, Munich, Regensburg, and Nuremburg. A large portion of the album is devoted to views of castles and palaces throughout France's Loire valley. People depicted in the album include Helen Clay Frick's father, Henry Clay Frick, her mother, Adelaide H.C. Frick, her brother, Childs Frick, and her governess, Marika Ogiz. A small section of images at the end of the album shows scenes around Clayton, the Frick family's Pittsburgh residence, and Eagle Rock, the family's country estate in Prides Crossing, Mass., which was under construction in 1905. Family employees James Elmore, a coachman, and Spencer Ford, a chef, occasionally appear in these photographs.
