Online Exhibition of RHSV Scrapbooks

Part of the scrapbook collection. 
The Scrapbook Collection of the RHSV is quirky and interesting, and now you can have a taster on them in a new Online Exhibition at our website.
 
For decades, the RHSV has received hundreds of donations of (printed) scrapbooks, from a number of scrapbook enthusiasts. These scrapbooks are comprised of mainly albums, containing newspaper clippings, pictures, letters, poetry, stories and other memorabilia. These are in no particular order, but have been compiled by various individuals who have selected items according to their own assessment of what is important, interesting, and worth remembering, from their own era. Enter this exhibit for a small sample of the stories that can be uncovered in our Scrapbook Collection.
