Victorians At Leisure
The Victorian Scrapbook

Another favorite pastime of both adults and children alike is the keeping of a scrapbook which is a collection of pictures on a subject of interest.

These scraps or "cutouts" can be printed in either black and white or in color, and eitherVictorian Scrapbook (152910 bytes) embossed or diecut.  The collector fills his album with pictures grouped in themes, interspersed with personal notes, lines of poetry or dedications from family and friends. (Here is one my daughter, Amy, has started.)

Delighting in romanticism and sentimentality, popular scrapbook subjects include angels, children, birds, butterflies, pets, and fans. Also popular are military and naval themes as well as scraps depicting circus and seaside outings.
