Physical Description

The scrapbook is 9 ¼”x11 ½”x ¼” and amounts to .05 cubic feet. It has approximately five pages of varying sizes. The front and back cover is burgundy coated cardboard. The front has the words, "Scrap Album" in gold letters along with three black and white cats. The pages in the book are no longer attached to the spine and are loose. They are yellowed and brittle. The programs, menus and other items for the most part were glued into the scrapbook so not all of them are visible. Some of the programs are delicate and brittle. Most are yellowed but are still legible.
