PHOTO MOUNT Filed Aug. 13, 1941 Patented Dec. 8, 1942 UNITED STATES PATEN FFICE 8 Claims.

This invention relates to mountings for pho-' tographs or the like, and more particularly'to a hinged mounting for use in compiling a collection of photographs in overlapping series, to produce a neat and compact album.

' Objects of the invention are to provide a hinged mounting which will permit a plurality of photographs to be mounted on any one page of an album, accurately define the hinge to thereby prevent any inadvertent ofi-center folding of the leaves, guard against lateral swinging of the mounted photograph as it is pivoted on the hinge, with resultant loosening of the mount from either the album page or the mounted efiiciency to photograph mountings of the prior art.

Other and further objects and advantages of the invention will be pointed out hereinafter in the following more detailed description and by gumming, thermoplastic coatings or pressure sensitive adhesive which may be temporarily covered with paper or the like which, when the mount is to be used for its intended purpose, is

' readily stripped off exposing the adhesively coated areas. The leaf 3, which is to be attached to'a supporting surface 1, such as the page of an album, may be slightly wider than leaf 2.

stiffening means comprising reinforcing strips 8 and 9 are superimposed on the front faces and ll of leaves and 3 by suitable means, as adhesive, the inner edges of said strips 8 and 9 extending approximately medially of the elongate blank I and being spaced apart slightly to define the intermediate hinge 4. Said reinforcing strips 8 and 9 further provide a Writing surface upon which memoranda pertaining to the photograph may be made to appear, 'While preferably in the form of strips {and .9 some of the advantages of the present invention may beobtained by using coatings of shellac, varnish, lacquer,

.starchor similar materials as the reinforcing reference to the annexed drawing, showing ion- 2 the purpose of illustration typical embodiments carrying a plurality of photographs, the top pho-- tograph being turned upwardly to show the method of mounting by the use of this embodiment;

Fig. 2 is a side elevation of Fig. 1 showing only one of the photographs mounted on the supporting surface;

Fig. 3 is an enlarged side elevation of the embodiment shown in Fig. 2 before it is attached to the supporting surface and photograph;

Fig. 4 is an enlarged front elevation of Fig. 3;

Fig. 5 is a front elevation of another embodiment of my invention showing a supporting surface carrying a photograph and showing the method of mounting by the use of this embodiment;

Fig. 6 is an enlarged side elevation of Fig, 5;

Fig. 7 is an enlarged side elevation of the embodiment shown in Fig. 6 before it is attached to the supporting surface and photograph; and

means.

In the use of a photograph mounted as .dis-' 5. Said adhesively coated face .5 is then mois- Fig. 8 is an enlarged front elevation of Fig. 7.

Referring to the drawing, the particular embodiment of the mount shown in Figs. 1 to 4 comprises an elongate blank I of flexible sheet material, as cloth, paper, or the like, comprising two leaves 2 and 3 and an intermediate hinge 4.;

The rear faces 5 and *6 of leaves 2 and 3 are coated with a suitable adhesive which preferably covers their entire surfaces. The adhesive to be used may be of any suitable type including, but not by way of limitation, water-remoistenable tened'andthe top margin of the rearo'f a photograph lids-applied thereto. The photograph is thenswung upwardly up'on the mount and memoranda pertaining thereto may be written upon the reinforcing strips 8 and 9, which are'normal- 1y concealed beneath 's'aid photograph I2, as

shown in Fig. 2. While the picture I2 is in its upwardly swung position, other photographs may be mounted in the abovedescribedmanner and in overlapping series. 'After the neared number of photographs have been so mounted and markd, they are swung downwardly ,on the hinges 4 to assume their. normal position, as shown in Fig. 1.

The preferred embodiment of my invention shown in Figs. 5 to 8 comprises an elongate blank I of flexible sheet material, similar to that shown in Figs. 1 to 4 in that it has like leaves 2 and: 3 and an intermediate'hinge .4, but as shown in Fig. 7 the adhesive-is applied to the'rear face 5* of leaf 2 and the front .face ll of leaf 3. The leaf 2, which is to ,be attached to the supporting surface 1, may be slightly wider than .leaf 3.

stiffening means comprising reinforcing strips Beand '9? are preferably superimpgsed, as shown ate hinge 4. In this preferred form the reinforcing strip 8* preferably provides a writing surface upon which memoranda pertaining to the photograph may be made to appear (Fig. 8).

In the use of the preferred embodiment above described, leaf 2 is fastened to the supporting surface I by moistening the adhesive -on" the rear face 5 thereof -'and"'-applying it to on said surface, the mount having leaves with faces cemented to the display and surface respectively and an intermediate flexible hinge about "whichthe display and its leaf may swing relatively to said surface and the other leaf, said leaves having stiffening sheets cemented to their ,free faces to prevent said first-named faces from pulling loose from the display and surfaces re- .spectively as the display is swung back and forth.

said supporting surface I as'shown in Fig. 6.

The adhesively coated face. ll of leaf 3 is disposed in the position shown in Figs. 6 and '7 and 4. In a photographic display device of the type inwhich a photographic display is hingedly af- -fixed to a support so that said display may be is ready to be attached to the top margin'of the rear of the photograph l2 by moistening and applying it thereto. The memoranda pertaining to this hotograph may be then written upon the unconcealed reinforcing strip. 8 of leaf 2, as

shown in Fig. 5. The photograph l2 may then be swung upwardly on hinge 4 to permit the mounting of additional photographs in the manner above described and in overlapping series, after which all photographs are swung downwardly into the position shown in Fig. 5.

It is to be noted that in each of the disclosed 2 and 3 when they are foldedabout hinge 4, with the resultant perfect alignment 'of the vertical edges of the mounted picture with the vertical edges of the supporting surface or album page. It is further to be noted that the reinforcing graph when it is either upwardly or downwardly swung, with consequent avoidance of the loosening of the mount from either the supporting structure or the mounted photograph.

It should be understood that the present disand that this invention includes all modifications'and equivalents which fall within the scope of the appended claims.
