Merry Christmas!

From everyone here at the SSS - Merry Christmas!  The young lady in this photo from the Library of Congress certainly seems to be enjoying her Christmas morning.  I'll wager she had a happy older brother as well, since I see an open Lionel train box on the left. 

I'm taking a quick break for the holiday, but I'll be back Monday.  Have a very safe and Merry Christmas!
