About this Item

Paper-coverd boards, oblong 8vo (8.75 x 7 inches); pp [40], rich with all sorts of ephemera -- newspaper clippings, photographs, invitations, dance cards, and more. Scrapbook compiled by Ms. Josie Powers of 124 Jay Street, Butte, Montana; Vice-President of the Junior class at Butte Central High School, Captain of the Girls' Basketball Team. Opens with a pencil sketch on the front-pastedown, showing a young woman in a stylish floral dress and high heels, holding a young man in a dip and laying a big ol' kiss on him. The caption tells us that this is "Josie in native scenery," and the rest of the scrapbook maintains that spirit of youth and fun -- bold and, it seems, into everything. Includes clippings from the high school newspaper, handwritten notes from her friends, prom invitations, and a bit of class warfare ("Fog horns are not the only things that blow, so do some Seniors"). Each page is completely full, nicely showcasing jokes, poems, and prayers in many hands, as well as the occasional sketch. Photographs nicely capture the hair and clothing styles of the period. Ms. Powers also saved a variety of little artifacts, from a wooden ice cream spoon, to a lock of hair, to fabrics, ticket stubs, honor roll lists, a glass tile, and church programs. A quirky, energetic amalgam. Bookseller Inventory # D3722
