Traditionally, autograph books were small books with blank pages to collect signatures, personal messages, and well-wishes from colleagues and friends. These personal mementos were exchanged and collected for friendship’s sake and to keep the addresses of new and distant friends.
This article includes history, trivia and samples of autograph entries.
Hold a reminiscing session with a group of clients and read some of the autograph entries supplied from bygone days. They may be encouraged to revive this lovely pastime. This is a worthwhile activity to enjoy with elderly residents!
