The Polkadot Scrapbook, part 4

My grandmother, Gladys Corinne Walker, was born in 1897.   She grew up on a farm in Argyle, Michigan and moved to Seattle at age 18, and she created this scrapbook during the 1920s and perhaps beyond.  The previous two scrapbooks were assembled in large repurposed catalogs on heavy paper.  For this one, she bought a ready made paper book.

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

As far as I know, my Grandma never took up smoking. (Although both my parents did, my mother briefly and my dad till about age 70.)
