The majority of the photographs were taken in Cape Coast. Some the images were taken in Elmina. Several images depict chiefs, including a chief of Elmina, in their regalia and with their entourages. Other images depict Fante peoples in studio settings. Their attire and coiffures are of great relevance for art historical study. Also included in the album are images of the architecture of Cape Coast and Elmina.
