Who Were They?

Lost and forgotten photos from the past


A pretty tree


A pretty card shows a tree, decorated with candles, balls and popcorn, with presents underneath and a curious kitten reviewing the scene. The interior message reads Wishing you / happiness / Not only at Christmas / But every day / in the New Year. It was signed Love, Crockett, Jo, Helen & Bill.

On the back of the card is a tiny trademark, not bigger than 1/4″ wide.


It reads

Local No 53 L

Lithographers & Photoengravers International Union



The union was formed in 1964 and was active until 1972 when it became the Graphic Arts International Union.
