Scrapbook from way back when

Somewhat interesting on the outside . . . not sure about the inside

Someone else didn't think it very interesting either.  They tried to spruce it up a bit

and made it their scrapbook.  (I wonder if they are related to Johnny Depp.)

Another great use for thread - keeping husbands at home, nights.

Roughly the above says:
"Accept these lovely fragrant flowers
Just culled this eve by me
From off the pretty laden bows
I selected them for thee.

"And for this little token I ask
A single vow of thee
That it may be a pleasant task
Sometimes, sometimes to think of me."

Admittedly, I was a little repulsed by these locks of hair.

A story of Mrs. Pounds' Triplets,
Lulu, Luther, and Lura.
Born in September 1881, they attracted visitors every day to their home for a year or more.  Mrs. Pounds was quoted "Why, the people did not even allow me one day in the week to do my washing."

And a Bible lesson from May 1890

Causes and treatment of bilious and nervous headaches.

Obituaries . . .

and marriages . . . 

I wonder what W. H. Depp would think of our modern scrapbooks?

We were in Cahoots

Cahoots is a restaurant in Hartselle, Alabama.  And it definitely has a vintage twist.

I intended to include just a few photos, but that didn't work out.
