Lad and Marian Guion’s Christmas Cards Throughout the Years – 1957

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 is not the actual picture they chose for the card that year. I was not smiling. This is why it was such a major project. Trying to get all of us smiling, looking at the camera and having us centered took quite a bit of time. Again, we were in front of the fireplace and I am sure my Dad made the frame for all the greens Mom added.

Dad took individual pictures of each of us every year, but this is the only one I have from 1957.
