Remember those scrapbooks that I got at an estate sale in Redding while on our Alameda Flea Market trip?
I have had some time to sit down and go through the scrapbooks. They are pretty nifty. One of the scrapbooks is for young couple as they start their life together in a new home and includes cards and letters. Another is a scrapbook from the 1940s and included some great older cards.
These newspaper birth announcements were all in the scrapbook. I like the larger card that says "Press Clipping". The card is signed by Larry Lieuranee, the chief librarian. I wonder if it was part of his job to send out these clippings to new parents? The other two clippings are laminated.
I love these old cards with the pin back buttons that declare an age. I have found the buttons before, but never on the original card. This card had a winky eye television that changed pictures. The tiny red plastic gun on the other card is a squirt gun!
Some of the pages still had cards attached, but many were loose and just nestled in pages. There was writing on many pages that captured the first few years of David's life. Lots of sweet little memories, like these...
Sept 24-27 - We all went to Lake Tahoe and I went in the water (it was cold!) Mama says I was a good boy.
Dec. 4th. Santa is a nice man. He gave me candy.
There were department store cards with the Santa photos. I collect those, so was happy to add them to my stash.
