VINTAGE SCHOOL DAY RECORD SCRAPBOOK FROM THE 1940'S
Good estates sales have been few and far between the last couple of months. Last week end was cold so I only went to a couple on Saturday and didn't find very much. Sunday, my youngest daughter walked in and said, "Mom, let's go to an estate sale." Of course I said ok and off we went. I got there and it looked like a family run sale which was good, they are usually the cheapest sales to go to. After looking around for about 10 minutes, I was about to give up and go home empty handed when I saw this blue book and wondered what it was. At first I thought it was a scrapbook which I usually buy if they are in good condition.
When I opened it I was more than pleasantly surprised!!!! The plain blue cover did not give a hint of what I found inside. It was a 1940's School Day Record book, unused except for a name inside the front cover. The graphics were amazing. My daughter asked if someone had colored the pictures. The coloring is much too perfect for that, I knew it was the way the graphics were made. It started off with a list of class officers.
This next page is perfect for a picture of the school.
Who can forget the teacher telling us to hush! Perfect page to list our favorite teachers and maybe post a picture.
A place to list the sports we played.
A few more pages, aren't you loving all these wonderful images?
Ending with a page devoted to that "big day" we couldn't wait for, our graduation!
The back of the book had several pages to place all our keepsakes.
It's a reminder that all generations cared about the same things and that memories are cherished!
This School Day Memories book can be found in my AntiquesGaloreGal etsy shop.
