Two scrapbooks from the First World War full of newspaper cuttings. These kinds of items are unique as they reflect someone's interest in choosing the news, photos, obituaries, poems, political cartoons, etc. Too much to photograph here!
The scrapbooks are delicate and some of the pages and cuttings are coming loose. But in very good overall condition for age, everything is readable.
This is WW1 as it happened, and just after.
