1945 Pirate Scrapbook FDR Memoriam Newspaper Clippings


I am pleased to offer this Vintage Scrapbook Album that features memoriam newspaper clippings of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s death on April 12, 1945. Includes approximately 50 clippings with text and images, plus four birthday cards; clippings appear taken mostly from the Chicago-Herald American. Some featured are of FDR’s four sons in service, images of his casket entering the White House one last time and other spiritual leaders leading their honorary services.

Album is cream color and features a brown tie string on the side; cover features a Buccaneer Pirate image centered with lovely art nouveau style designs throughout. Most clippings are attached with a few that are loose. Some pages in the middle are not used.  Wear with light marks present from age on cover; front is loose at top. Pages show some wear on edges with brown tint present from age overall. Good overall condition.

A great collection of clippings from this historical time!

Measurements: approx. 14-1/2″ inches long x 12″ inches wide.

Thank you for viewing!
