    This is a little closer look at the hanging pictures, and a couple of things from the scrap album.
    The scrap album was from an art student in the late 1800's to 1920's, the United States Eagle Banner pencil drawing is dated December 1897, and the San Francisco Sunday Examiner Magazine story is from early 1900.

    The Drypoint Original Etching of Music Composer Wagner is a limited edition, signed by the artist W. Pech
    The print is 3 3/4"w by 4 1/2"h in a 6 1/2"w by 8"h frame.

    The House By The Side Of The Road by, Sam Walter Foss, was printed by The Buzza Company Minneapolis, Minn. U.S.A. pat. 2-9-'26, is from "Dreams In Homespun" copyright 1897 by Lee & Shepard

      Great drawing-- it would look fantastic framed.

      The eagle has somewhat of a goose neck-- I love the amateur nature of the work!

      Thanks Scott, I think so too! :^) The architectural drawings are very detailed, as she got better, a lot of interesting newspaper clippings, and artist pamphlets in the album too. Also looked like she was into entomology, a lot of beetle articles, and drawings.
