Family Stories: 1950s Christmas




Today's photos are from the mid-to-late 1950s. My grandparents lived in Anchorage, Alaska for several years when they were first married. My mother came along during their time there, so her first Christmases were spent in the snow. Talk about a white Christmas!


Joan at home in Alaska. I guess this was her snow attire.
