Ruth Slifer Scrap Book VIII

Ruth filled 85 pages of an old notebook more than 90 years ago. I hope you have enjoyed the selection I posted these past few days.

I don't know if Ruth was making a commentary on boys or not, but facing this burro is an illustration she carefully folded to fit on the page. It's early Norman Rockwell, no less--celebrating the American boy to sell a product, perhaps Wheaties or some other Kellogg's cereal:

I think Ruth had a sense of humor! I hope she grew up to be and do all that she wanted.
