Desert Maneuvers, on Blurb Books
by 1942 by Major M.N. Levenick, U.S. Army 5th Armored Division
From mid August through November of 1942, Major Levenick served as the Finance Officer to the 5th Armored Division on maneuvers in the high desert of Southern California. He created this photo scrapbook for his eldest son, not quite one year old.
Fanny's Food Notebook, on Shutterfly
by Frances Brown, Santa Ana, California
Do you remember high school Home Economics class? I sure do! And I remember making a food notebook in the 1970's very similar to this one made by my Aunt Frances in 1942. Nutrition, food groups, menu planning were all part of the curriculum. Of course, Aunt Frances' class was learning about wartime shortages and how to fit rationing into everyday life. See the notebook here.
The same book made on Shutterfly, using the Mixbook website.

Here's a sample of the book I built on the Adorama website.
