The Scrap Album - Site Guide

“It would delight all the boys and girls who take an interest in these ever popular missives to design and fabricate their own.

Buy the materials from the stationers’ shops in town, whose windows bloom at this early Spring season with wonderfully profuse displays of painted flowers, wedding favours of silver and lace, Cupid’s and Hymen’s hearts and darts, illuminated honeyed verses and all sorts of fanciful devices and surprises.

There is ample provision for entertainment and instruction, providing a most valuable pastime for the young people.”
