|1964, East Hartford|
Parents like to show off their children, a common place is the Christmas holiday cards. We take the digitized view to any mass retailer who converts into cards to mail.
It was not so easy to make a photo card in 1964 in East Hartford – maybe a family photo would be inserted into a bi-fold card. In those times, the one sided picture card was not considered.
In that era of new neighborhoods, salesmen would prowl the streets to solicit. Such as the Christmas card salesman/photographer. Mom thought the idea grand and thus captured all seven of us, and quickly those who could dress themselves (all but one month old Christopher) were to gather in their Sunday best for the photo shoot. Which was the 1964 card.
Naturally, when our kids were young cherubs, we did the same. Two examples that have been scanned (film was the medium in the 1990s) are in 1993 (Cam in the Snoopy attire) and Allegra thinks 1999 was the other, that being a bit blurry. But with shadows!
