TBT: Preserving Memories

photo from digital exhibit "Scraps for Keeps" and the "A Family History in Watercolors and Prints: Life in Victorian Era Hull, England" collectionWe’re just about to kick off the spring semester, which also means a time to make more memories and reminisce on the old. One great way of looking back on and preserving memories is to make a scrapbook! Falvey has a digitally archived collection called “Scraps for Keeps” that looks at the classic way of storing information – through albums and scrapbooks.

The picture above shows a page of a scrapbook depicting the life of Edith Good of Kingston upon Hull, East Yorkshire. Being from a family of artists, the scrapbook contains many watercolor photos of her, her family, as well as some landscape pictures. Falvey’s “Scraps for Keeps” collection shows more pages from Edith Good’s scrapbook, as well as many others.

The last time I made a scrapbook was my senior year of high school for a Psychology project, what about you?
