Content Description

A Victorian novelty album owned by a Grace from Massachusetts. The covers are die-cut into a triangle with scalloped edges, and the album is housed in a triangle-shaped box. All interior pages are folded over, with instructions on the outside of when they can be opened. Many of the entries are from Stoneham, MA indicating Grace may have been from this area. The majority of the entries are from 1890 and are likely from her last year of schooling. Each entry is written by a different person and consists of quotes, poem, and memories of shared events.
