Album 16 consists of photographs taken between 1934 and 1939. Put together by Maria Nouwen the album is dedicated to Paul Nouwen, beginning with photos of him as an infant and continuing until he is roughly 5 years of age. Laurent J.M., Maria, Henri and Paul Nouwen are seen with family and friends, including Sara M. and Tennis Ramselaar, Judith and Lien Otto (nee Ramselaar), Henricus, Maria H.R. and Jeanne Nouwen and Els Albregts, throughout. The photos focus predominantly on day to day events at the family home in Nijkerk and later in Bussum, such as Paul Nouwen being held and cared for as an infant, the Nouwen children playing outdoors with friends and the Nouwens posing for photos. Special occasions documented in the album include a trip to Italy taken by Laurent J.M. and Maria Nouwen; Wim Ramselaar's marriage to Rie Letscherts; Paul Nouwen's 4th birthday party; and a beach trip to Wijk aan Zee in 1938.
