vintage photo time, christmas edition

Another Ampersand bulk-bin find. Isn't it a perfect holiday family snap? I can't stop grinning whenever I look at this.

"Presents did not fly about in those days as they do now. I remember, when I was ten years old, my father gave me a most marvelously ugly sugar dog for a Christmas gift, and I was perfectly delighted with it, the very idea of a present was so new to us."
-- from "Christmas, or The Good Fairy," by Harriet Beecher Stowe, 1896.

Luckily for her, this lady has a perfectly lovely real dog for Christmas. Whatever your wonderful pets may be, give them all a hug from us here at The Pet Museum!

Yes, a perfect choice! I remember when children (me, for instance) got basically one present, and the rest of the gifts were much-needed new clothes or even shoes or socks.
