In December 2008, the auction house, Profiles in History sold an album once owned by Mabel Normand; it held photos of her friends inscribed to her.  The album sold for over $4,000, sadly the catalogue didn’t list the names of all the individuals that were pictured.  I have found 6 of the pictures originally in the album and hopefully I will find more but in the meantime here is what I have.  There was also an early photograph of Mabel in the album as the album was in her sister, Gladis’ private collection, the photo maybe one that Mabel had given to her sister.
