The Booth family collection mostly consists of photographs of various members of the Booth family. There are several small prints of images captured by Matthew Brady, famed Civil War photographer. Most of the other photographs in the collection are portraits of unidentified individuals, presumably dating from 1860-1920. The materials in the collection represent various photographic techniques and include daguerrotypes, tintypes, ambrotypes, albumen prints, gelatin silver prints, and platinum prints. Additionally, the collection includes several pieces of correspondence with Alice Woodward, a relative of the Booths who donated most of the materials. There is also a publication on the history of the Monroe County Savings Bank titled, "Our First Century of Service, 1850-1950."
