Sepia Saturday - Musical Christmas Card

I haven't posted to Sepia Saturday in a long time, but while I was checking out some of the other posts, I suddenly remembered my grandparents' Christmas Card featuring my mother playing the piano and couldn't let the opportunity to participate pass me by.



I don't have the year for this Christmas card but it must be mid-late 1940s.  The only thing I remember about it is that my mother often comments that her hands were not in proper playing position when the photo was taken.

Happy Sepia Saturday!

  2. Oh she's right -- my piano teacher would have been patting my hands UP from under my wrists. Still a wonderful photo and treasured Christmas card, I'm sure.

  7. A perfect choice! She may have relaxed her hands but her posture is nice and straight.

  8. Super...little did she (or your grandparents) know that this card would be displayed here for all of us to enjoy! Thanks.
