While coming through the airport recently, I noticed a decorated sleigh used as a reminder of Christmas long ago. It made me think of some family photos I have always enjoyed. The photos are from the winter of 1938 and 1939. Driving the sleigh is my great-great grandfather, John Mac Vorhies. The lovely passenger is his daughter, my great grandmother, Estella Smith.
The sleigh bells in the photo are in my basement. Hope I remember to tell some family member how special I think they are. Maybe my New Year's Resolution should do with labeling all those heritage items I have.
