Description Print from glassplate negative. A young girl is sitting at the foot of a Christmas tree looking at her opened presents. The tree is lit with candles and decorated with garland. There are some dolls resting on tree branches. At the base of the tree are presents that include dish towels, a book, playing cards, dolls, and dishes. The young girl has her hair pulled back into a ponytail and is wearing a two-piece polka dot dress. Records indicate the young girl is Sarah "Lamb" Thacher and it was in their houseboat. There is significant damage around all the edges which replicates damage to the glassplate negative.
