Faux red crocodile leather album, 10 x 14 in., with embossed gilt lettering and metal clasp closure, 40 black paper leaves interleaved with glassine on which are mounted ca. 125 black and white photographs ranging in size from 2 x 3 to 5 x 7 inches. Titled in Russian on the front: “Memories of My Service in Germany.” Laid in are several pieces of Armenian-language handwritten correspondence, documents, recipes and newspaper clippings. A few photos with small stains, but overall very good condition. The owner of the album is identified on the inside front cover (in Armenian) as "General Lieutenant G. Hovakimyan," who served in the Russian Army during World War II and was a highly decorated officer. The album includes many images of Hovakimyan and other officers in uniform at various times and places, as well as family photos. Unfortunately, none are captioned. Nonetheless, this is an uncommon and interesting record of an Armenian officer and his family.
