Virtual Scrapbook Library

 

This new section of Ghosts of the Gridiron features "virtual" scrapbooks -- organized collections of digitized newspaper clippings, game programs and team photos associated with various old football clubs from throughout the region.  Some of these clubs are chronicled on this website, others are not -- at least not yet!  These scrapbooks are intended to provide deeper insight, both into their subject teams and the game of football as it was played during the early years of the last century.

Additional scrapbooks will be added to the library as time and resources permit.
