About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

Say It with Shutan's: 193x

Say It with Shutan's: 193x

c1930s. A storefront window display of Shutan Camera Co. on West Washington Street in downtown Chicago. My grandfather Edwin Shutan offered a large selection of quality Christmas cards and fine writing instruments - and always arranged the displays meticulously. View full size.

They Say More

I love the logic: not only should you say it with Shutan's Christmas cards, but you should do it because they say more. Than what? Other cards? Or not using cards at all? (Maybe I'm over-thinking it, but I still love that message.)

As for the pen-and-pencil sets and pen stands, I'm sure they'd come in handy for those Christmas cards, but I always thought of them as the classic Bar Mitzvah gift.
