PHOTOGRAPH ALBUM [mfg afar? I Filed Feb. 18. 1951 vmc , graphic print attached thereto.

Patented Sept. 13, 1932 {UNITED STATES DAVID J. .ABRAI-IAMS, OF BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS PHOTOGRAPH ALBUM Application filed February 18, 1931. serialNo. 51'6,-633.

My invention consists of a novel mounting for photographs and other pictures, and the object of the invention is to provide means for mounting prints back to back and utilizing the back of one to display the title to the other.

In the accompanying drawing illustrating my invention, Fig. 1 is a plan view of one side of a sheet of material with a photo- Fig. 2 is a plan view of the opposite side of the sheet with another photographic print attached. Fig. 3 is an enlarged transverse vertical section through the line mm of Fig 1, looking in f the direction of the arrow.

Similar numerals indicate corresponding parts in all the figures of the drawing.

Referring to the drawing, iis a sheet of material of convenient size for a binder or album, adapted to contain a plurality of such sheets. On each side of the surface of the sheet t there are shown three rectan ul'ar spaces described on the side shown in ig. 1 as'5, 5 and 5 respectively, and on the other side as 6, 6 and 6 respectively, said spaces being hereinafter referred to as'subdivisions. The subdivisions are defined by the border lines 7 on Figs. 1 and 2. In some instances it may be desirable to mount only one print upon each side of the. sheet, occupying substantially the entire surface of the sheet. The invention may be embodied in any size of sheet 4: that the user may prefer, and the subdivisions should be of a size to suit the print to be used thereon. Within each subdivision and near one end thereof, is an elongated opening 8, and slightly beyond the other end of each subdivision is a similar elongated opening 8. The two elongated openings relatin to a iven subdivision are substantiall parallel to each other, and are spaced apart about the same distance as the length of the 501 operator to assemble it with other like sheets PATENT OFFICE.

; HOWARD E. GILLESLPIE, F MALDEN', MASSACHUSETTS, nssreivon or onn-HAnr To in a binder of'ordinary construction .for loose leaves.

i In Fig. 1 is shown a photographic print 10, secured to subdivision and extending over and covering the elongated opening 8 within that subdivision, leaving the elongated opening .8 below subdivision .5 uncovered.

' In Fig. 2 is shown a print 11, secured 'to subdivision 6 directly back of the print 10, extending over and covering the elongated opening '8 within that subdivision, {and'leaw ing the opening 8 above the subdivision-6 un covered. Thus upon the back of the print 10; can be displayed, through the opening 8v above the print 11, the title to the print 11, and upon the back of print 11' can bedisplayed thetitle to print 10 through the opening 8 below the print 10. Y

The prints may be secured to. the sheet by different means. but 'I' prefer to have said subdivisions of the sheet gummed in any manner and to any extent the maker may desire, which the operator may moisten by a wet' sponge or cloth and then press the print thereon.

The print to be attached to subdivision 5.

is designed to cover the opening 8 within that v subdivision, and to display the title to the picture attached to subdivision 6' through the opening 8 shown'within subdivision 5 in Fig. 1, and below the subdivision 6 in Fig. 2. The print attached to subdivision 6* is designed to display the title to the print attached to subdivision 5 throughthe opening within subdivision GPand above the subdivision 5*. A corresponding arrangement of the titles will occur in the" relations between the prints attached to subdivision 5" and 6* respectively.

Each sheet 4, as illustrated in the drawing, is adapted to receive six photographic: prints with the name of each plainly displayed adjacent to it. 7 Larger sheets can, of course, be

made to display more prints in the same man- 12, 12, are guide marks for conveniently locating the corners of the print.

It is obvious that the sheet may beused not only for photographic prints, but for collecting a variety of souvenirs, such as postcards, postmarks, postage stamps and prised within my invention.

These sheets 4 being made preferably of thin paper, are light and convenient for photographers, and especially amateurs, to carry about, and provide convenient means for assembling a large number of prints in I a small" compass, and enabling the user promptlyv to entitle each print with its appropriate name. v 7 1 When a number of these sheets with prints mounted and entitled are collected, the user may then assemble them in a suitable looseleafed album. and preserve themfor ready reference. V r p What I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent is;

1. VA sheet of material havingtwo openings therein, combined with a photographic print secured to said sheet between said openings and covering one of them, and a photographic print secured to the opposite side of said sheet between said openings and covering the opposite opening.

-,2.

3. A sheet of material having two elongated openings therein, substantially parallel to each other, combined with a photographic print secured to said sheet between said openings and covering one of them, and a photo graphic print secured to the other side iof said sheet between'said' openings and covering the opposite opening, said first photographic print having inscribed th ere-on the 7 title to the subject of the other, said title be;
