Travel Scrapbook from trips to Europe (1938) and Cuba (1940)
Cord bound hardcover scrap book, 14.5 x 12.5 inches. With ephemera from two trips: the first to Europe (Ireland, Scotland and France) in August 1938, sailing from Boston to Cobh, County Cork, Ireland, aboard the S. S. California ship operated by Anchor Line. 7 leaves of ephemera from Dublin, Edinburgh, Paris and Reims. Used on both sides, the first 5 leaves are split at the gutter because of the fragility of the paper, but remain loosely inserted. The second trip chronicled is to Cuba in September-October, 1940 with Clyde-Mallory Lines, sailing from Miami to Havana aboard the "Shawnee," first class. Ephemera from the trips include luggage tags, hotel bills, postcards, telegrams, theater tickets, programs, menus, etc. There's also a guide to Esperanto and two unusual, but beautiful, crepe paper novelties. The original owner's surname has been redacted throughout, but was a First-Class traveler from Massachusetts. Nice collection.
