A Wesson Family Gets a Visit from Santa
John Holly Williams Collection, LLF Library
The library caption reads: "Barlow Christmas, January 1949
Group of 23 includes men, women, children and a Santa Claus. A Christmas tree is visible in the background. This group was identified in handwriting on the back of photograph as 'Barlow Family - Wesson,' however, the envelope had 'Robertson Family'."
I suppose it's possible that both families are represented. Feel free to chime in if you recognize anyone.
I do wonder, however, have to wonder about that Santa Claus and the youngsters' initial reaction.
