Attention Penn State Fans: Here is your chance to own a handmade and assembled remnant of a Penn State College scrapbook from the years 1919-1923. This collection contains over 100 real photographs, booklets and other ephemera. The 100 plus photos are mostly still attached to the large scrapbook pages (16" x 12") and vary in sizes and condition. The pages contain hand written information about the photos. Included in the photos are football in action shots, Beaver Field at night with the letter "S" done in flashlights, team photos, the Nittany Lion photo with coach and team on his back, an 8" x 10" photo of a lead cheerleader and also the maker of this scrapbook, military photos, floats on parade, Poverty Days pictures, Big Ball photos, a few theater pictures, scoreboard photo, students hiking and camping, an old car decked out for the game, an interesting photo of a burning building presumed to be on campus and many others. Some photos are discolored or worn but many are still in usable condition. Restoration would be an asset to these pages of Penn State pictorial history!
Besides the many photos, you will find a myriad of paper collectibles including a Thespians theater program, sports activity booklets, daily schedules, Below letters and final grades, lots of dance cards, a Penn State to New York sign... need a lift!, Baccalaureate and Commencement booklets, program and related ephemera for the Inauguration of President John M. Thomas, booklet of student tickets to events, Indoor and Spring Sports Carnival booklets which include photos of sports teams, a few paper cut outs of team pictures, "5599 Do You Remember?" print out, and a log of sports teams played with recorded final scores and other information.
These 15 scrapbook pages have photos or other information on the front and back sides (30 in all), the actual background pages have worn and torn edges, some pages have age related damage which discolored some photos or other ephemera. Being sold as is and as found with no cover, just individual pages. The original maker's name will be given out to the buyer only. Wonderful look at life of a college student back in the days of Penn State College!!
