my grandmother belonged to the camp fire girls, and i inherited her camp fire manual — as well as a few camp fire girls items.there is a dress and shoes, too.this week, i was able to get some software working that came with my scanner. it can take any scanned typeset and convert it into a readable pdf document. so i had the pages scanned already as images, and today converted them to a readable pdf format.
now — am doing this for historical purposes, and might even contact the current camp fire girls’ organization to inquire if they would like to have the file. will put a few still-shots here. along with the manual, were the sales-ad for camp fire items. not to be cynical here, but you gotta hand it to these old boys for having a pretty good racket going.
the pdf file for the entire manual is 34.2 mb …. so will take a little time to download, even if you have high speed internet.
i will needs take down the camp fire material from WORDPRESS.com ……. because i was UNAWARE the owners of WordPress.com were generating revenue via ads hidden FROM MY SIGHT as a member. that makes posting pages of the Camp Fire manual here a CLEAR violation of copyright. SO ……… i will place the material on my OWN site, which is revenue-free ……. and put a link to that here when am finished building the page.
have finished arranging a page on my personal website. to download the PDF go to this page:
and you will find a link for the PDF file as well as some slideshows of single pages.
