Autograph album containing signatures, verses, and sketches in pen, ink and watercolour. Miniature black and white photographs of several of the contributors are pasted on to the pages. Much of the content dates from 1905, with the latest contribution dating from 1917. Most of the contributors were trainee teachers at the Glasgow Church of Scotland Training College (CSTC), also known as Dundas Vale Training College, and the first page contains an inscription signed by the owner's mother, Annie B. McLellan, dated 18 January 1905. This evidence suggests that the album originally belonged to Sarah M. McLellan, who trained at the CSTC from 1903-1905.
Autograph book of Louisa Jessie Fletcher, student at the Glasgow Provincial Training College from 1914-1916, and James Maxwell Dewar Teape, Sub-Lieutenant, Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve. The book contains autographs, sketches and verses that are individually dated from 1916-1920. It appears to have passed from Louisa's possession into James's possession around the second half of 1916. The earlier sketches and signatures are those of Louisa's fellow College students and staff, and the later ones are those of James's fellow servicemen. The nature of the relationship between Louisa and James is not known, but he was not a student of the College. He worked as a Gas Department Clerk after the First World War and married a Glasgow schoolteacher, Isabella Breckenridge Falconer, in 1920.
