This page is from an unusual photograph album from the late 1800's. The album was filled with pages chromolithographed with gorgeous florals. In addition to the floral pages there were several pages with proverbs or words of wisdom. This is one of these pages. The words read, "Little Boats must keep near Shore". The page measures 8 1/4" x 11". The two photo openings are sized for a carte-de-visite(CDV) sized photographs (2" x 3 1/2". Sadly nearly all the pages do have some tearing around the photo opening. This one is no exception. If used as a mat under glass this would be barely visible. I can see using this for a mat with the photographs of children.
