An interesting scrapbook compilation by [we presume] Mrs Davis, [primarily] chronicling a pre-World War II road trip through the south, with stops in Arkansas, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina & Tennessee. The momentos of this trip include drawings, maps, menus, programs, photographs [including real photo stamps], receipts, publication extracts, postcards, etc, etc.
An invaluable primary source for documenting the middle-class Southern lifestyle prevalent in the era.
