Holidays are an important part of our life. We can also use them to help us think about the past. In this activity you will be examing two photographs of local families celebrating a holiday in the late 1800s in nearby Tuscarora NY. As you study them you will be asked some questions that will help you compare and contrast life in the Nunda area over the one hundred years.
