Christmas greetings from little Virginia, 1911

What it is:

Photo (3.5 x 5 inches) mounted on a cardboard frame/backing (6.75 x 10.75 inches).

What I know about it:

Photographer is Johnson of Lisbon, Ohio.  Written on the back (in an adult’s handwriting) is Christmas Greetings to Elizabeth and Angus from Virginia Lyle Smith 12/25/11.


This is from the same Christmas as the photo I posted from our Austrian friend Richard.  1911.  A century ago.  Blows me away every time I actually stop and think about it.  Frankly, although it’s unlikely that little Virginia is still with us, it’s not impossible, which also gives me pause (in a good way).

  1. Merry Christmas, little Virginia, wherever you are! And to you, Matt!

  2. Divine! Unusual clothes for a child to be wearing in any era, I’d say.
