Christmas Eve at Fourth Street 1951
Aunts and Uncles gathered around the table on Christmas Eve. Note how little food is on the table. Christmas Eve was a fast day, fish and borscht was all that was available.
Gift giving time in the living room. There were baby carriages everywhere,
Susan is on the floor, Mike is holding a mystery gift and Barbara is near carriage.
Did I get a tent? Note the intensity of the lighting. This photo was taken with a flash bulb, a glass bulb filled with magnesium and oxygen which would basically explode in blinding light with an audible pop. You could feel the heat, Fun times.
