Appraisal, destruction and scheduling
System of arrangement
An index was compiled on the first pages of the scrapbook, listing all products alphabetically, followed by their relevant page numbers as they appear in the album. Please note the irregular numbering of the pages.
It was for this arrangment that the digitisation of the scrapbook was done on page level, rather than individual advertisements. The name and date of the newspaper are provided underneath each advert in most instances.
