Don't I wish it was way before I was born!!! Great shot for the day! Love those vintage things since I'm one of the them, Lily.

Enjoy, it's really not that bad!

Lily, I like very much this kind of photos!
I'm always amazed that the world already existed when I didn't exist at all!!

Maybe they asked for a little sister? :)

My brother, who was born in CA, has a similar photo. Way before I was born too! :)

I still remember the snow-suit, and the sweater. I know this was a department store santa, but I can't say I remember this particular one. I do very clearly remember my little baby sister coming home just a few months later :)

The boy on the right was 3 years, the boy on the left was just 2, I believe it was taken at the mall. Good question, I'll try and remember, PGma

I was 8 in 1961; DEFINITELY "the look" of those Santa photos.

«Louis» wishes he could say that this was taken well before he was born. Alas, he was already 14....Louis obtient d'ĂȘtre une vache antique

In 1961 I was nine. So yeah, it's vintage - but not before I was born! Those early colour snapshots really didn't last well, did they? Mine are all all orange, too.
