J. Frank Willis gave this souvenir album as a gift to his sister, Pauline (Willis) Merritt. The album contains photographs by Breckenridge photographer Otto Westerman. Various subjects include town views, mine site landscapes, railroad tracks through gulches and Willis' property on Gibson Hill. Some are of the Ten Mile Canyon outside of Frisco, Colorado, and one photograph is of Tom's Baby (the largest piece of wire gold found in Colorado).

"Photos" is embossed in silver print on the front cover. The spine has a wide band with a silver embossed pattern on a cream background.
