I A ,J. WALKER PHOTOGRAPHIC MOUNT, ALBUM, AND THE LIKE Filed June 18, 1923 v d 0 C J JOHN WALKER INVE N TOR L1,- Attorney.
Patented en. 23, 1924;.
JOHN WALKER, or
rnowoennrnro MOUNT,
Application filed June 18,
To all whom it may concern.
Be it known that I, JOHN WALKER, of Farringdon House, 5, Warwick Lane, London, England, a subject of the King of Great Britain and Ireland, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in or Relating to Photographic Mounts, Albums, and the like, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to album leaves in which may be mounted photographs or other similar articles, such as samples of fine silks or other textile materials.
The object of this invention is to provide an improved album leaf comprising a backing sheet, and an upper sheet having an adhesive under surface and openings through which the article to be mounted is viewed, in which a folded edge common to both sheets is provided so that the album leaf may be readily turned over as a single unit, and at the same time in which it is not necessary to detach any part of the leaf from the binding of the album in order to moisten, heat, or otherwise treat the adhesive under surface of the upper sheet.
In order that my invention may be clearly understood I will describe, by way of example, and with reference to the accompanying drawings, two forms of album leaves made in accordance with this invention, the essentials of my invention being enumerated in the following claims.
In the accompanying drawings Fig. l and Fig. 2 show o-ne form in the normal and opened-out position respectively;
Fig. 3 shows the second form in the opened-out position:
a is a sheet of good quality paper, or other material, which is folded at Z) into two portions, namely, a backing sheet 0 and an upper sheet (Z. The upper sheet cl is provided with one or more openings 7 and is gummed on its inner surface as indicated in the drawing by the hatching. The backing sheet 0 is longer from side to side than the front (Z, and thus, when the front 03 is stuck down, has a projecting strip 7 separated from c by a scored line spaced from the edge of the sheet which strip is provided with perforations g to allow of the mount being bound in a loose leaf album.
In use the photograph or the like to be PATENT LONDON, ENGLAND.

photograph and on to the surrounding part of the backing sheet so that the photograph is held securely in position, and no further gumming or fixing is required on the back of the photograph, thus doing away with the risk of discoloration.
Fig. 3 of the drawings shows an album leaf in which the front has two penings for the mounting of two photographs or like articles. In order that the two articles to be mounted need not be mounted at the same time, the front is provided with a creased or perforated line m along which the two halves of the front are adapted to be torn apart when a photograph is being mounted to enable one half to be folded over and stuck down without the other half.
The fact that the front (Z is only attached to the album by the medium of the backing sheet 0 and the fold 6, allows the front to be opened out and its under adhesive surface to be moistened without any detachment of the leaf from the binding of the album. It also prevents the front from slipping laterally on the backing sheet when it is being stuck down and thus ensures that the three outer edges of the front will coincide with those of the backing sheet, and further the fold 6 provides a convenient and firm edge by which the user may turn over the leaves of the album and thus the two components of each leaf, namely, the front and the backing sheet, at once feel and appear to the user as a single unit and there is no'tendency for the two sheets to be torn apart.
It will be seen from the foregoing that the album leaf is of a uniform double thickness, with the exception of the binding strip 72. which is of single thickness, This con struction renders the album leaf particular ly suitable for binding in a loose leaf album. as the single thickness of the binding strips 71. will leave room for a loose leaf binding mechanism, which latter may be designed to render the total thickness of the bound strips 7L and the binding mechanism equal to the total thickness of the double portions of the leaves, thereby providing a compact album which Will allow of the covers lying flat and occupying a minimum of space.
What I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent is 1. An album leaf formed from a sheet of material of even thickness having at least one opening to one side of the middle of the said sheet and the surrounding surface rendered adhesive and adapted to be folded on the other portion of said sheet leaving a binding strip of single thickness, thereby forming an album leaf having a folded edge occurring opposite to the binding, and an upper folded-over portion Which is not secured down by the binding.
2. An album leaf constructed from a sheet of material folded on itself to forma backing sheet on the upper surface of Which the article to be mounted is laid, said backing sheet having along one side a part adapted to be mounted in the album; and an upper sheet having a plurality of openings through Which the articles mounted may be viewed, an adhesive under surface, and means Whereby the parts of the upper sheet containing each opening may be separated from each other easily, thus enabling the parts of the upper sheet containing each opening to be stuck down separately on the edges of the article to be mounted and on the backing sheet, said upper sheet being free from the binding of the album and joined to an unbound edge of the backing sheet thereby forming a folded edge common to both sheets.
3. An album leaf formed from a sheet of material of even thickness having a plurality of openings to one side of the middle of said sheet, and the surrounding surface rendered adhesive, and means whereby the parts of the said side of the sheet containing each opening may be readily separated from each other, thus enabling the said parts to be separately folded upon and stuck down to both an article to be mounted, and a remaining portion of said sheet, a portion of said sheet being left uncovered to form a binding strip of single thickness, thereby forming an album leaf having a folded edge occurring opposite to the binding and an upper folded-over portion Which is not secured doWn by the binding.
In testimony whereof I affix my signature.
JOHN WALKER.
