Advent Calendar Day 9 - Santa Revisited

I know we already had the Santa prompt this year but I simply must post this wonderful picture. To me it looks like it comes right out of It's A Wonderful Life. This is of my husband and his sister sitting with Santa. It was taken in about 1947. Sorry I haven't cleaned it up at all so it still has the crease marks from being folded and Santa has a smudge on his nose.

  1. Nice photo, even with the folds. Santa looks happy, and so don't the kids.

  2. I had one of those hats in the late 1940's too. They do look right out of a movie.

  3. The lighting, the facial expressions, the clothes - you're right, they do look like they're right out of It's a Wonderful Life!
