1942 scrapbook of original newspaper clippings. Scrapbook is dated 8-17-42 to 10-5-42. Length is about 60 pages. Clippings are pasted onto notebook paper. A few clippings have a black line down the column. Some pages have torn from the metal ring binding but are still with the book. Metal binder is pulling away from cover. Some wrinkling to pages. May have other wear. Please see pictures. Please realize that the pictures only show a small portion of the clippings in this book. As far as I know, These should all be from Pennsylvania newspapers.
