This is a collection of vintage images from holiday postcards, paintings, icons, Christmas cards, greeting cards, etc., that I have found on the internet and elsewhere. This is primarily for my own amusement and interest but others are welcome to join and submit their favorite vintage holiday-related images. This is not just Christmas-related - vintage art from other holidays (Valentine's, Easter, etc.) are welcome. Other vintage images are also welcome, such as advertising, old holiday/vacation photos and postcards, music posters, old recipes and cookbooks/food photography, movie stills, old images from your family photos, and so on.
Please keep images in good taste - I have a pretty broad definition of what constitutes good taste, so most things will be acceptable; I'm talking about NO blatant pornography and/or graphically violent images. I'm trusting members to use their good judgment when posting but I will delete anything I deem unacceptable. "Cheesecake" pictures are perfectly OK (as you'll see by skimming some of the entries). If in doubt, feel free to send me a message and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.
