Ohioan Phoebe Ann Mosey, you know her as Annie Oakley, is thought to have sent the very first personalized, photographic Christmas card. In 1891, while visiting Scotland, the sharpshooter had a tartan outfit made. A photo of her in the outfit was printed on Christmas cards she then mailed to friends, family, and fans.
Many articles on the web regarding Christmas card history mention Ms. Oakley and her photographic card. They say scarcely more than what I’ve written here. Add this one to the wee trivia pile.
