The Polkadot Scrapbook, part 6

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.

My grandmother clearly liked ships, and her second husband was a fisherman.

The next two cut outs were probably patterns for hooked rugs.  The horse appears in a previous scrapbook, as well.

The crisp yellow bedspreads, above, is an image that is repeated several times in the various scrapbooks.

Cosmos…my favourite annual and yet I don’t remember it being in my grandmother’s garden.
