"Press Tin Close"

Tin Photo Frame with Faux Wood Finish and Hanging Hook (LEO Design)
"A little closer.  Closer.  Good.  Hold it.  Say "cheese!"  Very good!" 

Oh, those sibling group photos!  Once a staple of family gatherings and grandparents' visits; Now, thanks to the camera phone, possibly a daily occurrence.  But, in 1920, when this pressed tin frame was made, such family photos were quite rare indeed. Kids were dressed in their Sunday Best and—as was the custom at the time—people rarely smiled for the photographer.  Photo day was serious and commemorative.  A photo was rare and meant to last.

This pressed tin frame is finished with an applied faux woodgrain and has a convenient hook on the back for hanging upon the wall.  Click on the photo above to learn more about it.
