The holiday season has begun! It doesn’t matter that stores decorated months ago. Thanksgiving is the beginning of all the winter holidays: Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa. In the last week of December I’d like to run a column that features historical photos from your ancestral family album that capture the season. You can email them to me.
They can be pictures of folks in front of their Christmas trees or family gathered around a table for a holiday meal. It can even be a snapshot of historical decorations on a Christmas tree.
I have a small collection of unidentified images of people that are not my ancestors. Here’s one.
This unidentified couple chose a picture of themselves tuning their new radio for their Christmas card.
Photo greeting cards date back to at least the 1880s. I own a New Year’s card of a woman; she sent it to her friends.
Can’t wait to see what you send me!
