The book has a leather cover and green moire endpapers. The pages of the book are blank and provide spaces for theatre programs and ticket stubs to be inserted. The unknown creator of this scrapbook collected programs from the Kyle Theatre and City Auditorium in Beaumont and the Prince Theatre in Houston. The dates of the programs range from 1920-1926. Forty-one programs have been preserved in this book. Most of the programs pertain to a series of plays at the Kyle Theatre performed by "Gene Lewis, Olga Worth and their incomparable stock company." Few clues to the identity of the scrapbook creator are available as the book was purchased from an antique dealer. However, the scrapbook creator often attended the plays with a man named Otis as that fact is recorded in pencil on several of the programs. Inventory Available
