There are several blank pages throughout my mom’s scrapbook. I’m not taking pictures of those and posting them. That would probably be pretty boring. I’m also not sure why the pictures didn’t come out as well this time as last time. They are kind of blurry and for that I apologize.
Page 4 is blank
Page 5-Why is this brochure for Greenville, Tennessee upside-down? I don’t know! I think that it may have just somehow ended up that way. I don’t see my mom deliberately taping it in the scrapbook like that.
Page 6 is blank.
Page 7-Two brochures for Unto These Hills. On the page my mom wrote:
“The most colorful & beautiful play ever seen about Indians.”
Page 8-An ad that was cutout and taped in for the movie The Hanging Tree starring Gary Cooper, Maria Schell and Karl Malden. I would say, “but Mom…why did you cut this out and tape it in your scrapbook?”, but I already know the answer: because Edward “Kookie” Byrnes was in that movie and she looooooooooves him.
Page 9-A brochure for Homespun Valley Authentic Mountaineer Village (the “One Thing In Gatlinburg You MUST NOT MISS!”) and a postcard of the Hemlock Motel in Gatlinburg. On the back of the postcard the Hemlock Motel boasts “Individual stone cottages. Tiled combination or shower bath. Air-Conditioning. Free Television, Playground. Restaurants near by. Open Feb. 15 to Nov. 15. Phone 196”. Free Playground!?!? Let’s go! On the page my mother wrote:
“Homespun Valley is located in the center of Gatlinberg, Tennessee”. Even though Gatlinburg is on both the postcard and brochure she still managed to misspell it.
Page 10 is blank.
Page 11-Brochure for Oconaluftee Indian Village in Cherokee, North Carolina. On the page my mom wrote:
“Oconaluftee is an Indian Village in Cherokee, North Carolina. This Village is also very colorful.” She must have been on a “colorful” kick.
Page 12 is blank.
Page 13-Two postcards that I can only assume she got in Cherokee, North Carolina. I can’t look on the back of the cards because she taped AND stapled them to the page.
