Memories found

I saw this  vintage scrapbook in a box at the weekly auction. I saw that it had alot of greeting cards in it so I put it on my bid list. I won! In my hurry to check out the other items , I neglected to look under the scrapbook in the box.

Under the book, I found certificates for insurance and mortgages from the 1870's and 1880's.
I also found bank receipts, letters and photos from the 1920's and 30's.
Those were all a bonus as the scrapbook had me at the cover.
