Additional Information

Charles made a festive reindeer for his mother, Celine, in 1929 and a beautiful church rectory flanked by old trees for his sister, Adele, and brother-and-law, Vincent. The card with a wreathed door was for Fred and Lucia Woermann, the parents of Charles’s first wife. The “Merry Christmas” card from 1931 shows Charles, Catherine, and daughter Lucia standing on a cartoon-like map of St. Louis, Missouri.
