The Autograph Book

Over the holidays, I came across the autograph book of my great-great aunt, Beatrice (pronounced Bee-AAH-Trice). It was given to her in 1918 and she used until her early death just a few short years later. It's filled with funny little poems and sayings from friends and family who were expected to write something witty or clever.

***Side Note: The names of my great grandmother and her three sisters all came from late 1800's/early 1900's romance novels. Their names were: Ethel Arduro, Beatrice Owens, Iva Deoma and Lillian Chesney. If you happen to be a turn-of-the-century romance novel buff, and know where these names may have come from do let me know!
