Alice’s Album

This is my grandmother Alice whom I named by biz after:)  AliceinParis! Here she is about 16 years old. I recently found a small Autograph Album of hers buried in a box of old photos. This album is almost 100 years old! There is a tremendous innocence to some of the entries by her pals.and incredible talent! This book must have been kept overnight in order to do this water colour sketch of the Brig o Balgownie in Aberdeen, Scotland.
And this corner of a page folded over:)And check this one out. Wow. There were bits of red pencil scribbles throughout. My father’s handiwork as a kid. Ha ha.  

I had an autograph book when I was 12. I can still remember what some kids wrote in it. Are they a thing of the past? What a great memento to have.
