Abstract Ernesto G. Fabbri (1874-1943) was an Italian linguist who spent a majority of his life in New York City, N.Y. His first wife, Edith Shepard, was the daughter of Margaret Louisa Vanderbilt and niece of George Washington Vanderbilt (1862-1914). Fabbri was a prominent member of the Society of Italian Immigrants and served as the organization's president early in the twentieth century. The collection consists of a photographic album and a letter from Ernesto G. Fabbri to his friend, Mr. Olin, for whom he had the album made. Fabbri took the photographs sometime in 1906 during a visit to Biltmore Estate in Asheville, N.C., the home of his wife's uncle George Washington Vanderbilt. Images include the Biltmore House and gardens, Biltmore Farm, Antler Hill Village, and grounds around the estate. Also included are images of unidentified people who are believed to include members of the Vanderbilt family. Several of the images of the Biltmore House and estate appear in Images of America: Biltmore Estate.
