Adhesive tape from 1949 is causing some Un-Happy Days in the Archive today.
Most of my relatives seem to have used either glue or corner hinges to attach photos to their album pages. Aunt Frances was the exception with this 1949 scrapbook of newspaper clippings from her senior year. You can easily see the damage caused by clear adhesive tape.
Few of these articles feature my aunt, but they do share the times and fashions. This could almost be on the set of “Happy Days.”
I am scanning any pages that include Frances Brown, and setting aside the six-pages of scraps with Auntie’s high school memorabilia. They would be perfect for an Auntie Smashbook!
