Lad and Marian Guion’s Christmas Cards Throughout the Years – 1948

"Greatest Generation" Life Lessons

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.

APG - 1948 Christmas card

As you can see, there are only three of us, but Lynn was due in December.

This is the standard form of Christmas cards for many years to come.

Tomorrow, another Christmas Card, this one from 1949.

Immersed in History – 15th Century

This is going to be fun. I just finished reading a book by Phillippa Gregory, a well known and prolific writer of history novels. My choice was The Lady of the Rivers. This was her first book. in her series The Plantagenet and Tudor Novels. I could hardly put it down. Now I plan to go straight on and read The Red Queen, the 2nd novel in the series. 15th century i English history. Who would have thought this would ever interest me?
