North British Mercantile scrapbook, part 10

My grandmother, Gladys Corinne Walker, was born in Michigan in 1897.  During her childhood on a farm in Argyle, Michigan, she created scrapbooks in old repurposed catalogs. She must have been in her late teens and early 20s when assembling this album, based on a 1914 seed packet in the first set of photos, and the WWI images that begin to appear in the second set.  She moved to Seattle in 1915 or 16 and  continued the scrapbook there into the mid 1920s.

 Let’s leaf through them page by page together, taking a closer look at especially interesting pictures.

There are many striking black and white drawings in this scrapbook.  I’ll be sorting the photos by that and other themes after they are all posted.DSC04528
