The vintage pictures, which were crammed into a suitcase, mostly contain memories of Trump with friends and family.

Also included were personal handwritten notes, Ivana Bacharach and Trump’s wedding album, eldest son Donald J. Trump Jr.’s baby album from Dec. 13, 1977, Ivana’s modeling images and a card drawn by Ivanka to her parents.

The photographs humanize the contentious politician’s life and give a rare, intimate glimpse of his “softer” side, according to Daily Mail.

Images of Trump drinking what looks to be wine were taken by his older brother, Fred Trump, before his alcoholism led to his death in 1981 when he was 43 years old.

In another photo, Trump is seen shirtless in a white robe sprawled across a bed, exposing his legs.

Images of wedding guests dancing at the reception include Trump’s parents, Fred Sr. and Mary, as well as Ivana’s parents, Milos Zeinicek and Marie Francova.

The family photos are believed to have been taken from the 1970s through the 1990s, just before Trump married his second wife, Marla Maples.

The New York Times reports both Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Hilary Clinton have cast their votes on Election Day.

Trump was met with a mix of boos and cheers as he happily entered the polling station on the Upper East Side just before 11 a.m. with his wife, Melania, to vote for himself.

Clinton also went on record proclaiming she had voted for herself in the election.

Trump gave an early-morning interview saying he expected to do “very well” in states like Florida, North Carolina and Ohio.

 “We’re going to win a lot of states,” Trump told Fox News. “Who knows what happens ultimately.”
