Title:Alice Marston scrapbook
Date(s):1896-1906
Call No:MSS 0421
Abstract:Alice Marston was the wife of Henry Ward Marston, an insurance agent who worked in Philadelphia at the turn of the twentieth century. As is[...] not uncommon for a woman of her position, little biographical information about Alice Marston is readily available. She married Henry Ward Marston on June 19, 1890, becoming a suburban Philadelphia wife and mother of at least two sons, Henry and Randall. The Alice Marston scrapbook chronicles a decade of Marston family life, revealing information about the social, cultural, and leisure activities of an ordinary upper-middle-class Philadelphia family at the turn of the twentieth century. This one-volume scrapbook includes approximately 150 photographs, tintypes, engraved wedding invitations, handmade party favors, artwork, scraps, postcards, programs from cultural and charity events, newspaper articles, and correspondence. A strength of the collection is its nearly 150 photographs. They chronicle not only Marston family history, but also leisure activities, clothing, vacation places, sporting activities, children, and pets.
