I ran off with tons of excellent ephemera...old receipts, ledgers, newspaper clippings, notes...all kinds of goodies. Too bad it all smells bad at the moment...

Note to self - open the plastic storage bin to let it air out...

Amaryllis, get that stuff OUT of the plastic fast before it all goes black and mouldy - I speak from bitter experience!  Old photos are especially vulnerable, as the chemicals are more fragile than the stuff they use now.  Your local museum might be glad of some of the stuff, and if you have really good scans, you can print off as many as you like for craftwork.  Lucky you, what a find!

Its all been in the garage in plastic bins & cardboard boxes for at least the past 20 years...I'm almost afraid that exposing it to fresh air will cause it all to disintegrate or something!

What an awesome find! I think you should research what prisons looked like in 1898 and make a shrine based around that....library time!

I've been digging around online to see if I can find anything. I'm totally fascinated with it.

just a note:  store old documents and pics in a photo box that is acid-free and lignin free photo boxes to avoid damage.  they are only a few bucks per box and well worth their money.  too many great documents have disintigrated beyond recognition because of storage!  also, you may want to spray it with archival spray, if you are really serious about preserving it.  whatever you use it on, feel free to spray it on the completed project as well, so as not to ruin your great work of art! 

i can't wait to see that in use!  how utterly interesting!

What's "archival spray"?

I do need to get some better boxes. I can't believe the stuff survived in the garage as well as it did.

amaryillis, are those things from your family, or by previous owners? Do you know who that bad boy is?
