Merry Christmas!

Sepia Saturday is celebrating the holiday and I’m sharing photos from the archives on Flickr Commons. If I have time, I’ll see what old family photos I can dig up.

A real Christmas tradition, Marshall Fields’ Christmas tree

Above is the giant Christmas tree at Marshall Fields’ department store. My grandmother would take us all for lunch under the tree. When we were small, we’d follow this with a visit to Santa. The lines were long, but we went every year till the store was bought by Macy’s. The chicken pot pie, Field’s Special Salad followed by their hot fudge sundae was the way to go.
