School Friendship Book [Scrapbook of Illinois School Girl]

(1920-1923). The very well documented high school years of Rebecca Hileman from Loda, Illinois are captured in this commercially printed book designed for just this purpose. Rebecca filled scores of pages with over 100 photographs of friends and family, souvenirs of school events, news clippings, letters she received, and more. Includes some memorabilia such as dance program, a valentine, a Wrigley gum wrapper, and postcards, all dating between the years of 1920-23. The book itself is in poor shape, with the spine missing, the loose text block in two pieces, and soiling and tears to pages. Still a fascinating picture of a young girl's school life in the early 1920s. AMERHIST/120516.
