This vintage ad from Life Magazine, 1955 captures a wonderful family moment of measuring a child's growth with a pencil on the door frame. How many houses in America have those little pencil marks with dates and names? Great ad line "Youngsters shoot up overnight, but - snapshots make the time stand still." Great picture for a little boy's room or even hanging near where you have marked your kid's growing up.

Those of us of a certain age remember those little yellow boxes of film used to capture our treasured moments. This was long before the digital camera and the cell phone.

Ready for framing at approximately 10 x 13 3/4. Some wear around the edges and small tears at bottom. Should be covered up by mat when framing. Some discoloration and foxing due to age.

These are beautiful. I love them. They were bent in mailing but seller was very fast in refunding for the purchase. They get a 5 star because the seller was easy to work with and they were exactly as pictured. I did end up able to use them but having them drymounted to remove the creases was pricy! They are so beautiful I needed to find a way to use them because after weeks of searching there was certainly no replacing them!
