Old Christmas Photos

Christmas in the old west was colorful blend of cherished traditions assembled with plenty of imagination.
By the late 1800's folks living in towns with railroads nearby had access to just about anything they were used to "back east" but the more rural westerners had to rely on mail order and creativity.
Either way,  it was celebrated!
Here are a few pictures representing what could be seen in those early celebrations.
