The MBCA Scrapbook is
comprised of text and photos from selected newspaper clippings, magazine articles,
reference material, and correspondence all
related to Antique Mechanical Banks. It is indexed, and can be searched by key words. The material covers the history and heritage
of mechanical bank collecting along with a wealth of information on
the banks themselves and the who, what, when, where, and why of mechanical bank
collecting. If you printed everything you would have over 6500 pages.
