Vintage 30s 40s Movie Stars Photos Scrapbook Autographs
Extraordinary ESTATE FIND: Vintage Scrapbook of 1930s and 1940s Hollywood Film Stars collected by a woman who was Elizabeth Taylor’s age (9) at the time she started. There are 560 Photos plus 3 Autograph cards. There is also a page or two with Capitol Records Recording Stars. 62 of the photos are signed on the front with some signed on the back (there are yellow post it notes that indicate these although there might be more. I didn’t want to take them all out and check in fear of damaging them. There might be more that are signed but when I was in doubt I erred on the side of caution. There are a lot of felt tip type signatures and most I could see were on top of the photo and not a facsimile signature. Some i just couldn’t tell because they looked like it. The scrapbook consists of studio photos, promotional photos, glossies, photo postcards and autograph cards. I believe there are some sepia ones in here as well. Please note that there are some post it notes on some that read “I signed” because she was young and didn’t always recognize the actor/actress by sight so she put the name on it herself. These are not included in the autograph count at all. I also believe that some are signed on the front and back by some actors/actresses. This is an amazing collection of wonderful MOVIE STARS and Recording Stars such as:
