"Bootle Beetle" (1947) - Scrapbook Cels

Here are a couple of items that have an interesting history.

I bid on an item that was described as a "scrapbook of Disney related items." When I received the package, I was surprised that there were a number of cels included in the scrapbook. Unfortunately, a significant number of the cels were ruined when the red paper behind the cels bled onto the white of the cel's ink. A few survived...

In some cases, I preserved the cel and others were interesting enough to get framed. The following item looks better when mounted on an original Disney production background from an unknown film.
