It's that time of year when the holiday photo cards start arriving from people you might not even remember. Eventually, if you're not really fond of them, the photos end up in the trash or stuck in the bottom of a drawer because you just can't bear tossing such nice people.
The people in this photo are unknown to me. In fact I got this second hand as a very nice gift for my birthday. I'm very easy to buy for.

Over the next few weeks I'll be participating in Sepia Saturday by deconstructing a very interesting and unusual Victorian Christmas photo. Each weekend I'll post a portion of this photo rolling it out in pieces like a taunting relative who gives you tiny hints about what they've bought you for Christmas. Shake the box all you want, but you'll not find out what it is until Christmas Eve.
An American Dream is the latest book in my series of vernacular photography books. The American dream of owning a home through vintage vernacular photographs. The focus is on the people who lived within the homes as well as the varied architecture from the late 1800s to the 1960s.
