Primary Sources for the Upcoming Holidays



A variety of holiday images are collected for your classroom use in Pictorial Americana by the Library of Congress.  Examples include an 1886 advertisement for Christmas cards - an image from an era gone which evokes an era still further gone by.

Or, for a very different look at the same time period (1896 - 1906), consider In Holiday Finery, Chinatown, San Francisco from Prints and Photographs at the Library of Congress. http://www.loc.gov/pictures/item/agc1996001021/PP/
