Holiday Card

Holiday Card, c. 1935, Photograph and paper, Gift of Mr. and Mrs. Louis Bailey Audigier, 1934.1.AU.30.

This holiday card features an image of Louis Bailey Audigier, and reads, “A merry Christ and a happy New Year.” While the phenomenon of photographic holiday cards may seem modern, it has been common since the turn of the century. At that time, photos were much more costly, but often traded between family and friends, especially around the holidays.
