Who Were They?

Lost and forgotten photos from the past

This pretty doorstep scene inspires a welcoming feeling, and comes with a funny twist. The front reads

Happy Chirstmas

May wishes come

From far and near

Fill heart and home

With

Christmas Cheer

The card was mailed in 1926 to Mr & Mrs Frank Bartholow of Thurmont, Maryland. It was signed

Best wishes to you and yours from us and ours, Mr & Mrs Brosius

The funny thing here…I buy these cards from antique dealers across the US, none are my own, but this particular one features a family name, and our family lived in and around Maryland for many generations. It’s quite possible this card was sent by a distant relative nearly 100 years ago, only to wind up with me!
