Souvenir pillow

This souvenir pillow from the small town of Cabri, Saskatchewan reads “Souvenir of Saskatchewan, Canada, 50 Years of Progress 1905-1955.” The 50 years commemorate Saskatchewan's designation as a province independent of the Northwest Territories. As the growing middle class pursued travel in the late 19th century, souvenir pillows became popular trip mementos.

My favourite is a yah "hair" scarf. The hair is long and curly and fliuffy. The scarf is dyed a pale turquoise and is a joy to wear.
