These clippings were removed from a veeery old scrapbook that contained newspaper clippings dated 1898 through the 1930s. They are in delicate condition, but can still be handled without crumbling. Some of the clippings had been cut apart to fit within the pages of the scrapbook. They have been reassembled (much like a jigsaw puzzle) and held together on the back by archival-quality mending tissue. This is NOT Scotch tape! ]It contains no acid or lignin and will not cause discoloring or any other damage over time. It should not be removed.
