Description
This scrapbook was compiled by Mary Leihr during 1926 and 1927. The scrapbook includes drawings, cartoons, notes, letters, and telegrams sent by Mary's beau Al William Logan, a travelling saleman. Many of the cartoons and sketches express Al's adoration for Mary and illustrate his travels. The notes and sketches are also representative of 1920s American culture with references to fashion, radio, race, and humor.
Background
