L. s. RILEY 2,096,559 MOUNTING HINGE FOR CARDS, PHOTOGRAPHS AND THELIKE Oct. 19, 1937.
Filed NOV. 2, 1935 Patented Oct. 19, 1937 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE MOUNTING HINGE roa CARDS, rno'ro- GRAPES, AND THE LIKE 3 Claim.
This invention relates to devices for mounting photographs, cards, newspaper clippings and other articles in an album or other supporting surfaces, and more particularly to a device of 5 hinge form.
The main object of the invention is the provision of a simple and eflicient mounting device for fastening the object to be mounted to the supporting surface along its top edge so that it may be turned pivotally as on a hinge.
Another object is the provision of a device which permits a plurality of cards or photographs to be mounted on a single page in an overlapping series and to be viewed in succession by turning them upwardly on the mounting.
A further object of the invention is the provision of a hinge mounting which will prevent any lateral swivelling of the mounted object.
An additional object is the provision of a mounting hinge convenient to handle and which may be easily applied in use.
Other objects of the invention will be in part obvious and in part set forth hereinafter.
My invention contemplates a mounting hinge of elongated form made from, preferably, a rectangular blank of adhesive coated paper or other suitable material, by folding said blank along a longitudinal line approximately midway between its longitudinal edges to form two leaves D having their adhesive coated sides outermost and exposed. One feature of the invention resides in so fold ng the blank that one leaf is slightly wider than the other, which facilitates the opening out of the hinge when being used 5 for mounting a card or other object.
Another feature of the invention consists in corrugating the mounting after it is folded, which stiilens the leaves and tends to make the hinge retain its folded form so that it is more p easily handled. Preferably, the corrugations are impressed transversely of the leaves while the hinge is in folded condition, so that the corrugations in one of the leaves nest within the corrugations in the other leaf.

Fig. 2 is a plan view of the blank from which the hinge of Figure 1 is formed, looking toward the adhesive-coated side and showingone corner turned up to expose the uncoated side;

form of hinge in which the two leaves are provided with transverse corrugations;
Fig. 5 is a side elevation of the hinge, with corrugated leaves;
Fig. 6 is a plan view of a supporting surface 5 in the form of a rectangular card, which may represent a page in an album, carrying a plurality of photographs mounted thereon in an overlapping series, a portion of the photographs being turned upwardly to show the method of mounting by the use of my device;
Fig. 7 is a side elevation of same; and
Fig. 8 is a sectional view on anenlarged scale of a supporting member and a photograph hing ediy mounted thereon, the position of the phol tograph when turned upwardly being shown in broken lines. 4
Referring to the drawing, Particularly Figure l, the mounting device of my invention is shown 'as being in the form of a narrow, elongated hinge comprising two leaves l0 and I2, hinged together along their longitudinal edge at M. The outer faces of both leaves are coated with a suitable adhesive l6 which, preferably, covers The leaves may be of the same width but, preferably, the leaf III is slightly narrower than the leaf l2. 7 The mounting hinge is made of paper or any other suitable material. When paper is used, it should be thin and tough and, preferably, fibrous in order that the hinge may have dur ability and resist tearing. The hinge may be formed from a blank I! (Fig. 2) coated with adhesive I 6 on one side by folding one portion of the blank upon its remaining portion along an intermediate longitudinal line it.
Although the blank may be folded on a median line, preferably, it is folded on a line just oil the median line in order to provide leaves of slightly difierent widths, which facilitates handling and opening the leaves of the hinge when the mountingis to be used. The blank is so folded that the adhesive coated sides of the leaves are outermost. I
In Figures 4 and 5, the hinge is shown as having the leaves provided with corrugations 20, which are preferably transversely of the leaves, with the corrugations in one of the leaves nesting in the corrugations of the other of the leaves.
To accomplish this result, the corrugations are impressed in the hinge after it has been folded into the position shown in Figure 1.
The provision of corrugations in the hinge has a number of advantages. First, it enables me to use a somewhat thinner paper, because the corrugations tend to stiffen the paper to prevent bending. In the next place, the corrugations fix the fold so that the leaves of the hinge do not,
-- because of the resiliency of the material. tend to spring apart as far as they naturally would in the absence of corrugations, which facilitates the handling and packing of the hinges in envelopes for commercial use. The corrugations also tend to prevent any lateral swiveling of the mounted object in relation to its supporting surface.
In the use of a mounting device made in accordance with my invention, one leaf of the hinge is fastened by moistening the adhesive on its coated surface and applying it to the back face of the photograph or other article to be mounted, along the margin of the top edge thereof. The adhesive on the other leaf is then moistened and that leaf is then pressed to the supporting surface in the proper location. Thereby, the card or photograph is hinged to the supporting surface, whether card, or page in an album, or other surface, at its top edge, and after being so mounted, may be turned freely up and down on the hinge.
This permits a plurality of articles to be mounted in a closely associated series in which each of the articles to be mounted overlaps the article beneath, to an extent dependent upon the spacing of the hinges on the supporting surface. This enables one to mount a considerable number of cards or photographs on each page of an album for instance, but, of course, renders it necessary, in order to view the photographs, to turn each upwardly on the hinge as a center to expose the photograph beneath each, 'as illustrated in Figure 6 of the drawing. It forms a very convenient and emcient method of mounting a large number of articles within a small compass.
It will be observed that the hinge of my invention is much elongated. This is an important feature because it provides relatively long areas of adhesive attachment to both the object mounted and the supporting surface, thereby securing a firm and durable mounting and, at the same time, it holds each card or photograph in vertical alignment with the other similar objects in the series and prevents any lateral displacement due to swiveling of the object on the support.
What I claim is:
1. A device of the character described, comprising an elongated rectangular strip of paper or other suitable material folded on a longitudinal line approximately midway between its longitudinal edges to form two leaves, the outer faces of said two leaves being coated with adhesive and said two leaves being provided with stiffening transverse corrugations, the corrugations in one of said leaves being nested in the corrugations of the other leaf.
2. A device of the character described, comprising an elongated strip of paper or other suitable material folded on a longitudinal line to form two leaves of different widths to facilitate opening the leaves for use, said leaves having their outer surfaces coated with adhesive and being provided with minute, closely associated,-
transverse corrugations for stiffening said leaves, the corrugations in one of said leaves being nested in the corrugations of the other of said leaves.
3. A device of the character described, comprising a piece of paper or other suitable material folded on an approximately central line to form two leaves, the outer faces of said leaves being coated with adhesive and said two leaves being provided with parallel corrugations perpendicular to the line of fold, the corrugations in oneof said leaves being nested in the corrugations of the other leaf.
