These approximately 250 photographs were taken between 1909 and 1982, though primarily in the 1930s and 1940s, and document the lives of family and friends of the Thomas family from Detroit, Michigan. Many of the photographs feature Costrella Thomas (later Griggs, then Hightower), who was the daughter of Bill and Lucille (maiden name Nelson). Also included is Lucille's mother, Ella Price, both of whom moved from Mississippi after the death of Lucille's father, John Nelson, between 1920 and 1930. There are photos of members from the Havard family, Mary Washington, George and Gerald Taylor, Mrs. Provost (who owned land in Ontario, Canada), and many other individual photos of identified people.
