IJA 1983 Photo Album / Scrapbook

At the 2016 IJA Festival in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, a scrapbook was donated to the Museum of Juggling History by Duane and Mary Pickering of Milwaukee, Wisconson. This scrapbook features photos that the couple took and literature from the 1983 IJA Convention held in Purchase, New York (USA). You can see these photos and literature below. Thanks to the Pickerings for the donation. Since the first official IJA video didn’t happen until the next year, this is especially helpful in showing some of the highlights of the convention.
