Blanche’s Scrapbook, Newspaper Clippings, Event Programs, Greeting Cards, Keepsakes, Travel Memorabilia, Ephemera, Mid-Century

Blanche Fleury of Northwest Ohio kept a wide variety of keepsakes in this dark green, embossed, hard-cover scrapbook. It opens with newspaper clippings from the 1930s and multiple newspaper articles written by Elsie Robinson and goes on to be packed with clippings and keepsakes through the 1960s. Keepsakes include event programs (plays, graduations, ceremonies, etc.), church programs, travel brochures, greeting cards, wedding invitation, magazine clippings, and postcards. Some pieces are taped to the pages of the scrapbook while many others are loosely inserted in the book. The inserts outnumber the 36 pages of this scrapbook.

The newsprint pages of this scrapbook are fragile and show wear and tears on the edges. The unenforced holes are broken on some of the pages making them easy to pull from the tiled binding. The tape used in places has yellowed. There is also a tear on the outside front cover.

The scrapbook is 8.5 inches wide by 11.5 inches tall and is about one inch thick.
