Alan on Sepia Saturday says:
So here we are, at the end of the fifth year of Sepia Saturday, still going strong, still going sepia. Tradition dictates that we slow things down a little over the festive season with a single call covering both Christmas and New Year. And tradition dictates that it is a festive prompt. So here it is - families, festivities, trees, candles and wine. The image comes from the Flickr stream of the Archives of the Royal Family of Denmark. All you have to do is to post an old image linked to this seasonal theme (or not if you are a Sepia Scrooge) sometime over the festive season and link it to the list here.
|Barbara McLoughlin, Ted and Ethel Conner Christmas 1959|
Well I may not have the wine but I've got the candles.
Although there is no identifying information on this photo, I am dating it at 1959 chiefly because of the McCalls magazine that my paternal grandmother is holding. It seems to be a Christmas issue and when I searched online for a McCalls magazine issue cover circa 1959...bingo! ...I found one for sale here and I think I've found a match.
So there we have it, my mother (before she was married) and paternal grandparents celebrating Christmas in 1959.
Oh I do like being a family tree detective...I do I do.

A very Merry Christmas to you and yours.
