1 MRS. MARY E. PIPER 1924 ORIGINAL SCRAPBOOK AND JOURNAL OF A CROSS COUNTRY COAST TO COAST TRAIN TRIP BY THE MASSACHUSETTS CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
Coast to Coast By Train 1924 Good+ Manuscript 
On offer is the meticulously kept, original 1924 scrapbook and journal compiled by Mrs. Mary E. Piper who detailed a coast to coast journey organized by the Massachusetts State Chamber of Commerce. Over 54 pages in a large two-ring 11" x 9" binder Mary has made a lovely relic to early 20th Century cross country travel. Official itinerary, postcards, menus, newspaper clippings, stickers, luggage labels, magazine pictures and original photographs all add a depth to the handwritten narrative. This trip was a massive effort by the Chamber of Commerce and its importance was reflected in the guest list of the itinerary stating any number of important Massachusetts business and cultural leaders. Mrs. Piper proves to be a delightful travel companion and diarist who easily notes: "Another wonderful day to think about all my life." And then another one of many quotable entries made us laugh: "The Blackfoot Indians staged a show for us and also made our leader Mr. Blake a Blackfoot Indian, called him Bald Headed Eagle, put the signs on his face with what appeared to be mud." Condition is generally good but paper has yellowed but overall G+.
