A Coal Miner’s Christmas, 1913

Photo Courtesy
Robert C. Baughman, Jr.
This photo was taken by George A. Baughman, the Webmaster’s Grandfather, on Christmas Day, 1913. It shows my uncle Robert Baughman (standing); uncle George Baughman (seated at left), and my mother, Violet Baughman. The book under the Christmas tree is entitled “Playtime Painting and Drawing.” How I remember my Grandmother playing that Piano! The gifts under the tree can’t have cost much (remember, this was a Coal Miner’s Christmas), but can you imagine their value today, and the value of the tree decorations?
