Scope and content

This collection features an array of home-made scrapbooks from the early to mid-1900s, most of which feature antiquated forms of advertising and fashion. The creators are all unknowns or names without renown, but these scrapbooks highlight their personal tastes and interests, offering some unique insight into their lives.

There are currently four small scrapbooks in the collection, and more will be added periodically.
