The scrapbook

Imagine that you are a little boy living in Algier and had heard that there would be an expedition through the Sahara by car!

You are fascinated by the modern vehicle and ask your dad to give you the local newspaper every day. You cut all the articles and glued them into the most beautiful scrapbook you've ever owned! You read and read these pages for many years after, dreaming as if you were on the expedition with the heroes. Now you are an adult and have found your scrapbook in the attic thinking about your childhood memories.

This might have been the story how I found this scrapbook, instead it is made today with the help of modern technology and the French National Library. Thanks you for this opportunity!
