These are some images that I scanned from an album that my Grandmother Lena created so long ago.
She filled the pages, some thirty odd in number, with cards, poetry and sentiment that was so abundant in the 1880's.
Some of them are advertisements from mercantile establishments in San Francisco and in Honolulu, before Hawaii was a territory.
I keep the album wrapped up and in a drawer. I don't take it out very often as the pages are so brittle.
I'm fortunate to have this and some of the beautiful crocheting that she did. I am able to know her just a little bit through these precious things that were hers.
Wishing all a good weekend...
