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.

I made a scrapbook full of things I picked up on a really fun trip to San Francisco. Candy wrappers, bus transfers, receipts, flyers, Chinese food take-out menus and more. This probably sounds kind of unexciting, but I think simple things like this from different cities can provide a neat picture of how much little things like this matter in experiencing a new city.
