Anna and Richard Wagner

Anna and Richard Wagner married in 1900. From that year until 1942, the German couple had their picture taken in front of their Christmas tree every Christmas Eve. Retronaut has eight of those pictures, with commentary about how the photos show the effect of history on the couple. Link -via Everlasting Blort

Loved this post and looking at the series of pix at the link! There is something so poignant about watching their life together progress. The pix taken during WW I were especially interesting as I've been following along with posts on Mental Floss about the lead-up to that war.
