A scrapbook tenderly documenting the love story of Virginia and Bob.

The poignant album documents their college years and courtship, ending with Bob's enrollment in the Marines in 1943. With numerous photographs, ephemera, and other illustrations, including shots of the handsome pair at dances, weekend outings, and as students, as well as student IDs from their alma mater Temple University, newspapr clippings, notes they sent, and other keepsakes, along with Virginia's commentary and captions. Silver prints, the images measuring 7 1/2x9 1/2 inches (19.1x24.1 cm.), but most smaller, and the reverse, each page with captions, in ink, and other mounted ephemera. Folio, decorative leatherette with a tie binding. 1943
