This is a Christmas card from the Wilson M. Compton family from 1938. This Christmas card is titled, "The March of Time". It serves as an example of the classic style of Christmas card that the members of the Compton family would send out every year. When you open the card, the message reads, "...time marches on" with a photograph of Wilson M. Compton, his wife and their 4 children. When you open the card further to the full page view, you see photographs of the entire family, Wilson M. and his wife, Helen, and their children: Wilson Jr., Catherine, Ross, and Helenita. From there, they had a breakdown of what each family member did during 1938: vocation, avocation, vacation, achievement, ambition, interest, problem, pet, pet aversion, favorite invention, and overheard to say. At the bottom of the page, the message reads: "Wish for 1939 Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to You! The Wilson Comptons".
