Merry Christmas in a vintage way!

 I found the most interesting vintage pictures at this website:

and there was this information about dollhouses!

December 1900. Christmas tree in the home of Wilbur and Orville Wright at 7 Hawthorn Street in Dayton, Ohio, three years before their famous flight. 4x5 dry-plate glass negative by the Wright Brothers.Their brothers, Reuchlin and Lorin had children -- one was an inventor of toys -- hence the dolls and miniatures.What great presents--the doll tea and dishes set, roller skates and some very detailed doll furniture, the train--a classic Christmas!

January 1901. Dayton, Ohio. "Bertha Wright, age five, niece of the Wright brothers, daughter of Lorin Wright," with some of her many Christmas presents. Dry-plate glass negative by the Wright Brothers.
