a) This the fifth photo/scrapbook album in this collection which were found in Chattanooga and donated as a group. It is the largest, covered in wood grain vinyl and titled in gold "Photo Album", and stamped "MADE IN JAPAN" inside the back cover. Condition is fragile as to the spine. It has been compiled primarily as a newspaper clipping scrapbook with its four pages in plastic sleeves, and several items loose in the back.
The contents are primarily clippings from Chattanooga area newspapers of the 1960s-1980s. The subjects are garden clubs (especially Murray Hills & Highland Park) and various community groups plus some church news, travel souvenirs, and a few pictures. Many well known Chattanooga names of the era are to be noted here. Many of the photos include Mr. and Mrs. Tom Fred Kennedy. Mrs. Kennedy (Ruth) may possibly be the compiler of the album
