Christmas Past: A Cincinnati Family Celebrates the Holidays 100 Years Ago

I picked up these photos in a Pasadena thrift store years ago. There is no information on them except the stamp on the back: Moser & Son, Cin’ti, O.

Aside from the tree (seen below) and what seem to be wreathes in the windows, there is very little sign of decorating.

And there you have it, a spindly Christmas tree, seen through a doorway.

Moser and Son

The 1916 Cincinnati directory shows that the Moser studio was at 20 Emery Arcade.

    Great photos. Commercialization of the holiday hadn’t hit yet.
