Christmas Card from JULIUS, EILEEN RENEE, and LENNY

I have featured items from a scrapbook my friend Bert gave me at my other site, Tattered and Lost Ephemera. The scrapbook was created by Montez Lawton, an elementary schoolteacher, in the San Francisco Bay Area.

This Christmas photo card is from the scrapbook. I have no idea what the little boy is holding, but I can see the very cool cowboy shirt (checkout Tattered and Lost: Buckaroos and Buckarettes).

You can see more items from Montez Lawton's scrapbook at Tattered and Lost Ephemera by typing her name in the search box at the top left column.

And please take a moment to look at my new book Tattered and Lost: Forgotten Dolls. I have published seven books of vernacular photography. Each with a sense of humor and pathos.


  1. I can't tell what is in Lenny's hand either - but they are sitting next to a piano.

    1. Which means these kids were probably forced to take lessons.
