1924 Baby Book

I found this baby book at the flea market.  It's rather incredible.  I noticed that the person who put it together cut up postage stamps to hold her pictures in place.  I thought that was very unique & something we could use today in our grungy look.  I haven't seen pictures placed in an album in this manner before.  My guess is that she had to use what was available.  When there is no internet & no UPS and town is far, one has to be creative to get the job done, and that she did.  You can't see the stamp pieces real clear in the photos but in the book it's quite obvious.
