• Gavin Holman deposited Tissue paper commemorative programmes and napkins on Humanities Commons 6 months, 2 weeks ago

    A look at a form of commemorative souvenir that due to its fragile nature is rarely seen today. These items were printed, and often overprinted to mark some significant event in the 1890s and up to WW2. The first case I came across was some programmes for the Besses o’ th’ Barn Band – their final farewell concerts before embarking on their two world tours in 1906 and 1909.
