In honor of the upcoming Christmas Holiday, I'm spotlighting this photo
From the home of
Jethro & Sarah Mapson
My Great-Great-Great Grandparents
This Christmas photo was taken at the home of Jethro & Sarah Mapson, near Granada, MN around 1910-1915. It's very likely that it was taken by their grandson Harry Mapson, who was a photographer, starting as a teenager.
In the background you can see a pendant from San Diego, CA, which is where Jehu Mapson, a brother to Jethro lived. The Mapson family were prolific letter writers & much correspondence survives today.
This lovely photo, from over 100 years ago, is one of my favorite pieces of Holiday memorabilia.
