That's not unique to that period. I have Stephen King hardcovers that are like this. Also /lots/ of books with a photo insert section don't number those pages, or number them separately from the rest of the book (A1 .. A10 as an example). The blank backside of the illustration page is mostly an artifact of the printer using different paper for the illustration pages and not having an illustration for both sides. I would say not to bother with anything about the blank page, but mention the photo side. If you can get someone sighted to write a description that would be really good too. If the illustrations/photos are scattered through the book they likely go with the text at that point and thus moving them to the back doesn't make a lot of sense. I might well give a different answer for photo insert sections since they are divorced from the text anyway.
