I just don’t know what happened to this year; I do know that I’ve only managed to post about six times which is a marked difference from the previous years, understatement. December the first marked five years of the Longwhitekid blog.
It stood for ‘Good Housekeeping Brand’ (I don’t think it had anything to do with the magazine of the same name).
I’m guessing this is probably the work of Conrad Frieboe, who had a long career working for the Department of Education on various publications from the 1950s through to the 1970s as well as for book publishers and magazines like ‘Stitch’ ( for which he did beautiful work).

Glass Christmas tree decorations dating from the 1950s to 1960s.
We used to have these on our family tree and some went back to my great-grandparents who had owned them before WWII.
