Many of the items James Flowers discovered were probably not meant to communicate but
instead to serve as reminders, solely for the individuals who left them behind. These
mementos and personal ephemera include bookmarks, cards, clippings, recipes, tickets,
receipts, and more. The level of significance these items held to their original owners
is unknown, but it is plausible that many of the materials found in this section held
some personal meaning as they represent a variety of people, places, events, and customs.
