Scrapbooking in the 19th century was a popular pastime with women and children - just like it is today - offering a glimpse into the lifestyles and culture of 1800s.
But our blue scrapbook is a trip back in time, which stirs the imagination - and mystery - when you can actually hold a book that was created so long ago.
This Victorian scrapbook holds a signature the inside cover: Clara Comstock. Her collection of advertising trade cards, greeting cards, calling cards does stir the imagination. It is a collection of (often romantic) images that are planned organized well. Included are calling cards, paper mementos on art, gardening and seed catalogs plus various advertising cards.
Authentic and soooo interesting. More about Victorian scrapbooks here.
