Found Scrapbook

This tattered elementary reader was found on a dusty shelf at an antique mall in Mobile, Alabama. Since I'm habitually seeking out old, damaged books this one jumped out at me with its worn binding and torn pages. I was pleasantly surprised to find that a previous owner had used it as a scrapbook to feature their collection of movie star clippings. The first several pages of the book are missing but from what I can tell the book is from the early 1930's. Here are some of my favorite pages.....


  1. What a wonderful find! Hope you're staying warm...

  2. Yes, what a COLD weekend! We've stayed bundled up :)
