Everyday until Christmas, I am going to try to post a picture from a past family Christmas.
This is my Mom again with Santa in 1927. I don’t think I ever saw a Santa outfit quite like this one. Love the outfit my mother has on. It looks like it would be warm. My grandmother wrote “Howe Street” on the back. So I am assuming that this was taken on Howe Street in Chicago. No date on picture other than 1927, but I assume it is near Christmas and there is snow on the ground. I wonder did Santa walk up and down the streets of Chicago to have his picture taken with children. We are use to seeing Santa in department stores. The picture appears to be a professional one, not just a snapshot.

Fake beards have come a long way since then! Your mom’s outfit is adorable.
