Mustang Club of America Scrapbook
This page provides links to download scanned versions of the Mustang Club of America Scrapbook. This scrapbook documents the first two years of MCA, including the first Grand National Shows, correspondence to and from the club, and the original ad for organization, published in the Atlanta Constitution-Journal. The scrapbook is oversize (11.5 x 14.5 inches), and each page could not be scanned in its entirely. Consequently, you may see an artifact of splicing images to make up a scrapbook page. There are 47 pages in total; some pages contain newsletters, by-laws, etc., that have also been scanned. The files are quite large, and I've included the approximate size in the links below. The files are .PDF format, readable with Adobe Acrobat 5.0 or higher. Each page retains the original size; if you wish to print the pages, you'll have to scale the images to fit the printer page size.

Notes on scanning and images. Each scrapbook page measures approx. 11.5 x 14.5 inches. Original scanned images of the top and bottom of each page were saved in .pcx format, 300 dpi, 16.7 million colors, apporximately 32 Mbytes in size each. Each top/bottom scanned image was converted to .jpg format, and spliced, and then saved as a complete page, measuring 13 Mbytes. No image enhancement was performed, such as correction for colors, hue, or texture. The final page was de-sampled to 150 dpi and then saved as a .jpg format (approx. 800 kBytes), and converted to .pdf format at the original scale for placement upon the internet. Requests for copies of the original scanned images or intermediate formats should be directed to the MCA Historian.
