Lad and Marian Guion’s Christmas Cards Throughout the Years – 1955

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.

This picture was taken in front of the fireplace in the center portion of the Trumbull House. My guess is that either we were getting too old for the costumes or Marian just ran out of time. She was running and teaching at the Kindergarten held at our Church. This must have been easier. 

APG - 1955 Christmas card

I don’t know how there came to be two different designs for Lad and Marian’s Christmas cards this year, but there are.

APG - 1955 Christmas card - with message

Since this one has their name on it, I would guess that this design went out to more people.

APG - 1955 Christmas card with message to Margaret (Irwin) Mitchell

This message was on the back of the second Christmas card. It was sent to Marian’s sister, Margaret (Peggy) and was returned to me after Aunt Peggy passed away by her oldest daughter. It reads:

Wish we were

saying this in

person – It would be

so much fun to have

everyone together – we’d

have to hire a huge

hall but it would be

worth it – Hope Dede

is feeling better –

All my love


Tomorrow,  I will post the Christmas Card from 1956.
