  • Patent number: 4514919
    Abstract: An apparatus for storing, displaying and identifying photographs having a plurality of transparent, overlapping pockets provided with adjacent opaque writing surfaces for carrying information pertinent to photographs held therein is described. In the preferred embodiment, each pocket is formed of a folded transparent member which is attached along the fold to a backing member. The transparent member thereby forms two transparent panels. Between the panels an opaque sheet is inserted which extends slightly beyond the edges of the panels. An adhesive-backed opaque strip having a surface which may be written upon is placed over the edge of the opaque sheet and the edges of the transparent panels, thereby forming a pocket having two compartments and opaque writing surfaces which do not substantially block photographs held in the compartments.
