Breana Sowers | Diary of Images: Victorian Scrapbooking Tells a Story @ Old City Hall | Key West | Florida | United States

Presented by Breana Sowers

Join Breana Sowers, Archivist of Monroe County Libraries, as we explore the history of late 19th century scrapbooking in the United States – how Scrapbooks evolved from a rainy day parlor activity, to meaningful, personal representations of cultural and social expressions; using ephemera, text, and photographs. Showcasing examples from the Key West Library Florida history archives, we will reflect on why individuals chose to save certain items and what that tells us about the history of Key West.
