Color Book Scrapbook, chickens

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 first  two scrapbooks were assembled in large repurposed catalogs on heavy paper.  The third was created in a ready made scrapbook.  For this one, she bought a book of art paper.  It proved to be not as sturdy as the others and has separated into a pile of individual pages.

  Let’s leaf through page by page together, taking a closer look at especially interesting pictures.  As time permits, I’ve used Google Image search to try to find out more information, especially the year.  This enabled me to find out for sure that she was still making this scrapbook in 1935.

This particular set of pictures is all about chickens.  All but one of the pictures are by Hashime Murayama.  You can read fascinating biographical information about him in a blog post on Through the Aquarium Glass.  And here in the Glover Park History blog.
