Summary
Scrapbook was pasted into a Commonwealth of Massachusetts account book that was handed out to cities and towns for their assessment of taxes. The pages are dated 1861 and 1875. The first page is undoctored and it appears the book was never used for the stated purposes. Instead the Lawrence Assessor's Office pasted in a variety of material covering the years 1848-1909.
