I found this old Christmas Greeting.
Far Guy and his big sister in 1952. He would have been in his terrible twos..in a few months he would have been three. His sister would have been seven. The photo was taken at their home in Park Rapids Minnesota.
Apparently several photos were taken. The best would be chose along with a greeting and the negative taken into a shop that developed film. In a few weeks your cards would come..with envelopes all set to send out for Christmas.
The old velvet couch had very ornate pieces of wood on each end. I suspect that the couch was navy blue or burgundy…burgundy most likely..that was their fathers favorite color.
These black and white photo greeting cards became popular after WWII and continued on into the 1950’s and early 1960’s. In the mid 1960’s the Christmas photo greetings appeared in color:)
