Item details

An antique scrapbook of cards, started in 1944 and completed in 1948. This extraordinary volume belonged to a long time resident of Leelanau County, Michigan. She collected all of the cards she received during these years and secured them in this book. All the cards are labeled by year and the valentines include the name of the giver as well.

All in all there are 151 Valentine's Day cards, 47 Christmas/New Years cards, 19 Birthday cards, 7 Confirmation cards, 6 Easter cards, 4 Wedding cards, 2 Thank you cards, 1 April Fool's card, 1 Graduation card (and 4 others that aren't in the book but are included with it, shown in photo 1), 1 letter from Shirley's brother, 1 camp souvenir card, 1 Mother/Daughter Banquet card, and 1 Scorecard.

The book is in lovely condition considering it's age. The cover has some wear from use. The pages have browned from age and there is some foxing (shown in photo 5). The cards and book binding are secure and sturdy. The book measures 14.5" x 12".

A beautiful, one of a kind piece!
