The Pasch Brooks scrapbook, part 1

When my grandmother, Gladys Corinne Walker, was a child in Michigan in the early 1900s, she made two scrapbooks out of old catalogs.

Sit with me, and we will leaf through the scrapbook together, a few pages at a time, as we look more closely at some of the best pictures.  Later, we might amuse ourselves by sorting the pictures into topics.

    1. My grandma had me making scrapbooks but I did not keep mine like I did hers. She taught me to cut out carefully around the pictures. I wish I still had mine as a lot of the pics would have been of flowers of the early 60s, I am sure. I can’t even recall when those scrapbooks of mine fell by the wayside. Even though hers got water damaged when I lived in a leaky place, only the edges of the backing paper got discolored. Am so chuffed I managed to hang onto something of hers that is over 100 years old.

      1. Lovely thing to pass down on the next generations. I’m making my own scrapbook now cutting photos of flowers and plant. Maybe one day I’ll show them in the post.
