Description Photographic print of the 1945 Chattanooga High School Christmas Party. The seniors of the school had an annual Christmas party for orphans at Chambliss. Each group had a child's name to buy something for, and then they came to the school for a program in the auditorium complete with Santa and the presents. It was an all day event with refreshments. A number of small children are gathered around a student who is dressed up as Santa Claus and is holding presents. Other students are around, large Christmas tree in background. On the back of the print, it states "page 8" and "and their hearts." This photo was apparently used in some Chattanooga Public Schools publication.
