As noted in previous pages, this blog is for the purpose of inventorying every page in my maternal great-grandfather's TERWILLIGER SOUVENIR ALBUM, covering the years from 1840 to roughly 1900.
Here is Page 37 - with almost 30 calling cards of various acquaintances. They are put in rather oddly, with cards turned sideways on both sides, going into the middle card. Odd. What can I say, my great-grandfather filled the page thoroughly. Note the stain on the bottom middle of the group - it looks like a liquid was spilled and wiped off. Coffee? Wine? The ink is fading quite badly on many of these cards, so the image is not the best, I'm afraid.
When I opened the page, the first known name I saw is the one on the left side of the bottom, Gaylord P. Clark, an old friend of my great-grandfather. I will simply list these cards, starting at top left, and advancing more or less across the page from side to side, back and forth roughly by row. Some cards are partially covered, and the glue is phenomenal - I am unable to peek underneath the card to find more information!
