18 Vintage Photos That Will Make You Nostalgic For Christmases Past

18 Vintage Photos That Will Make You Nostalgic For Christmases Past

Experience the magic of Christmas during the '40s and '50s.


Dec 24, 2014 from Country Living

Whether it's the tinseled trees, the heartfelt gifts, or just the general kind-hearted and simple spirit of the times, no era captured the true essence of Christmas quite like the 1940s and 1950s. Even today, our traditional associations of the holiday are from that time period, and the most beloved holiday films are either from it (It's A Wonderful Life) or about it (A Christmas Story). So we've compiled a roundup of archival photographs that exemplify just why this time period has such an enduring Christmas legacy.

1. The trees enshrouded in tinsel.

2. The simple stockings hanging off the mantelpiece.

3. The predictable gifts. Dolls for girls...

4. ...and bicycles for boys.

    Not to be exaggerative, but people's faces even look different. Everyone looks positive and energetic.

    You're right Matt there's definitely a difference in peoples demeanour and expressions today compared to the old b and w photos.

    Agreed, I saw a couple of others with the same people in and wondered about that!
    "Now look surprised and delighted!"
