OLD MOVIE SCRAPS
A few months ago I was really into looking at old scrapbooks from the late 1800s/early 1900s on ebay. There were a TON, but when I went to check again, thinking I'd post about them, there was only one or two....
So, I started just browsing around (of course..) and found a new obsession: old movie star scrapbooks! Lovingly assembled, vintage fandom at its best, these old things are creepy, cute, and great to look at.
The photo above and below are from this one, which is almost entirely dedicated to Norma Shearer and Clark Gable. Isn't that cute?
Below, pages from this scrapbook, dedicated to Barbara Stanwyck!
Next we have this Greta Garbo scrapbook, which is priced SO SKY HIGH at $1200...
I love these pictures from this scrapbook, which has lots and lots of stars from the 20s - 50s. Isn't this Jean Harlow page so great?? That quote!
This one really stands out for its so so so charming aged, yellowed tape.
