Perth, Ontario, Autograph Book, 1888-1897

I found this autograph book in my files – I must have picked it up at an auction around 2002. Unfortunately there is no owner's name in it, but her name was definitely "Edith". She probably attended or taught at the Perth Model School, and she had several cousins in Jeffersonville, Indiana. Aside from her cousins, the autographs are mostly from Perth, but also from other Lanark County towns.
