EDITORS COMMENTS
In this nostalgic print captured on the 16th of December, 1969, we find ourselves in Wellsteed department store on Broad Street, Reading. As a young boy curiously examines Santa Claus's beard, his little sister stands beside him with a mix of apprehension and suspicion written all over her face. It seems that she has begun to question the authenticity of this jolly old man. Set against the backdrop of Christmas customs and traditions in England during the 1960s, this image perfectly encapsulates childhood innocence and wonderment. The children's expressions reflect their genuine emotions as they encounter Father Christmas up close for perhaps the first time. The humorous moment captured here showcases not only the nervousness but also the shyness that often accompanies encounters with Santa Claus. In Berkshire's South East region, where this scene unfolded, it appears that even back then some youngsters were savvy enough to question whether Santa was truly real or just an imposter. As we delve into our memories through these prints from Memory Lane Prints, let us appreciate how such simple moments can bring joy and laughter even decades later. This photograph serves as a reminder of those cherished childhood experiences when belief mingled with doubt and magic danced alongside reality – a timeless snapshot frozen in time within our hearts.
