Although very few images remain pasted in the original scrapbook, thecollection appears to have been arranged into groups of images with similarsubjects, usually depicting a particular event. Several of these groups tellalmost complete stories. Others show only fragments, and pose more questionsthan they answer. For the purposes of this project the images have beenplaced in sequences that follow a logical order, but may not be the originalorder of the images in the scrapbook.
