(not so) Wordless Wednesday: Christmas Tree in 1940

Alice Minnie Hoffman, daughter of Henry and Catherine (Hochrein) Hoffman, was born 18 December 1902 in Jackson, Tennessee. She was an older sister of Gladys, the aunt in last week's picture. She married Albert Kaltenstein on 3 November 1934 in Cleveland, Ohio. For a few years they lived in the upstairs of the duplex her mother had built next door to her own house in Cleveland. This Christmas tree was photographed in that upstairs by Al and based on similar pictures was probably in 1940. Not long afterward they moved into their own new house. Though seventy years ago, doesn't that tree still look shiny and bright? It was lacking a bit in branches, but not in spirit.

  1. Reminds me of the Christmas trees our family had when I was little. Sparse on the branches but with plenty of tinsel to fill the gaps.
