Judging by these prize-winning Christmas decorations, things were simpler back in 1956. These days, houses are lit from top to toe; such a modest display would not even merit a passing glance. But in the mid fifties they were enough to win Mrs. Ruth Bass a clock radio in Madison, Wisconsin.
Mrs. Bass looks like she was brought out for a quick snap shot with her prize, without even time to put on a hat or gloves. But I’ll bet that the clock radio found a place of pride in her house.
I’m back from my trip and will be posting again regularly starting Tuesday.
