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 sir 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.
