Martin Christmas 1958, pictures by family

The Martins traditionally got together at Christmas time. At first we could fit into someone's home, but as the family grew we started renting the Odd Fellows Hall in North Topeka. The photos below were taken Christmas 1958.

Lewis and Velma are not pictured here. They lived on the West Coast and often were not with us at Christmas, so we recorded reel-to-reel audiotapes at reunions and mailed audio-greetings to our California family.

Third generation family members not shown in these photos include Roger and Russell, sons of Bob Martin, not yet born.

In about 1960 home movies began to record family growth.
