This is a scrapbook compiled by Martha Farnsworth. The scrapbook includes materials related to the P Square G Club, which stands for the Play Square Gang. The P Square G Club was the name given to Martha's Sunday school group that she began teaching in the early 1900's. The scrapbook contains photographs of the P Square G Club enjoying activities like fishing, swimming, and various holiday celebrations. The scrapbook also includes a section devoted to the "Cradle Roll," a list of babies whose parents are members of the P Square G. Club. Martha Farnsworth lived in Topeka, Kansas from 1887 to 1924. Her scrapbooks not only reveal her values and the activities in her life, but also provide a picture of American life at that time. Some of the notable aspects of Martha's life include her participation in social reform movements, membership in social clubs and activities, her deep religious convictions and her vigorous energy level.
