Here are a few more pictures.....
I believe the large album go to the 19980s. There are 4 cartons or totes. There are several old album some of them look like they may good back to early 1900's.. There are 2 'starter' kits. I make some pictures of the large album on Tuesday.
I haven't done much with this accumulation in years. Pulling it out and putting everything together in one place is an interesting experience. Lots of neat and nice stuff I didn't even know I had.
The large albums are NOT one complete set, but parts of a couple of sets that my original intent was to merge into one, but that did not happen.
I'll answer the many questions above after a bit more investigation.
The 3-ring binder on the bottom shelf is some interesting stuff. A picture of 2 of the pages in viewable in the upper right hand corner of the last image. I'll take a few more pictures of the contents.
