The tricky business of Christmas cards

27 Nov

I’ve spent about one day a week for the past year scanning and saving photos and letters that were found at my grandmother’s house after she died. In a somewhat timely fashion, I came across this Christmas card from 1959:

I don’t know who these people are. It’s signed by Elva, what looks like Ribs, Earl and Robert. It’s a lovely family photo.

But do you see him? The kid in the background? Making faces?

This is now my favorite Christmas card.
