When Valerie, one of my followers, commented on how much she liked the old Christmas cards in a recent post, it led me on a trip down Memory Lane. I was reminded of the photo Christmas cards that were so popular during the 1940’s, 1950’s and 1960’s. I will be posting the Christmas Cards Marian and Lad sent out each year as their children grew up. Some of you will recognize this type of card, they may be unfamiliar to others. Enjoy them each day for the rest of the month.
The family is growing, joined by Greg in August, 1947.
Marian has Greg in her lap, Lad has Judy gripped between his legs and is holding on to Doug.
Marian had Doug in her lap, Lad is holding Greg and Judy is standing on her own. Notice Lad’s hand holding on to her. (I guess I didn’t like to stay in one spot for any length of time). I don’t believe either of these were a Christmas card photo but it is a photo of the family in front of the (very sparse) Christmas Tree in 1947.
Tomorrow, Lad and Marian’s Christmas Card from 1948.
