QC Christmas Trees, 1950’s Style

While looking through photographs from 1959, we came across one with a Christmas tree. Our curiosity piqued, we began looking for more local images from the 1950’s that showed different styles of trees and decorations. As our gift to you this holiday season, we present the following photographs of mid-century (20th!) Christmas trees from our collection:
