Young voices from the past (and a few older ones, too!)

Whatever happened to that wonderful elementary school custom of collecting autographs in leatherbound autograph books? Recently, Marash Girl retrieved a box of warehoused books that had been salvaged from her father's house before the family home was sold.  At the top of that box was a small red leather bound book with the gilt embossed title, "Autographs"!  Carefully opening the book (Marash Girl had hoped that it was her own), she found the name and address of her sister with their home's first phone number, Lasell 7-2854 and the Claflin School year, 1954.   Would you like to take a peek through some of  those pages?
