Petit calendrier memento pour 1928

Petit calendrier memento pour 1928

Louise’s little calendar, found in the box. The calendar was made by a local jeweler, Pierre Cleper.

Cleper was very proud of his little diary idea, and gave one to his friend Brunet, who then gave the thing to his wife, as he had no use for something too small to contain his business appointments. The quaint superstition of the copy inside the booklet tickles housewives, which Cleper means to do. Witness the second page:
