About this object

Scrapbook; a scrapbook of textiles compiled by Moira Dunlop Keith. Samples of different textile fabrics have been fixed to the pages of an old wallpaper samples book.

Below many of the samples are handwritten notes identifying the type of material, what it was used for, and occasionally a corresponding date. For example: "flannel petticoat, 1912 era"; "Winceyette, baby gowns"; "Men's and boys pyjama material"; "Moroccan Crepe, 1950".
