This beautiful Valentine’s Day card is from Minnie Berkeley’s scrapbook which was donated to the archives over 45 years ago.
Minnie was 14 years old when she started compiling her book in 1894. She filled the pages with pressed flowers, inspirational messages and fun snippets like cartoons and calling cards.
Scrapbooking as a hobby continues today. Museum and archive enthusiasts share an affinity with these memory keeping crafters.
