Historical Society Scrapbook
Our Historian recently discovered a scrapbook of historical clippings related to Portsmouth that compiled clippings and other documents from circa 1930 to 1960. They are provided in the following parts. (Due to the size of the pages and placement of some other items many pages required multiple, overlapping scans, so you may have to page down to read all of some articles).
