Abstract:This eclectically compiled nineteenth-century British scrapbook features collectible scraps of flowers, animals, children, birds, and work scenes; greeting cards; original ink, graphite, and watercolor artwork; material related to British royalty;[...] scenes of famous British places and buildings; and numerous images from varied sources. Several items depict "exotic ethnics," such as a black woman, an "Indian," "Orientals," and "Arabs." Not all of the 36 leaves in this album are filled: the first 23 are filled, perhaps by a young woman or teenage girl; the last two leaves are filled with five color printed images of British trains cut from Boys Own Paper, suggesting perhaps a brother or son is responsible for those images in the album.
