The late Theodore H. Althof, Jr's beautiful collection of vintage dimestore cardboard Christmas 'putz' village houses. Start with the categories/history page and read about the evolution of cardboard Christmas houses. Then go straight to the houses, organized by period (Early/1920s, Golden Age/1930s, World War II, and Postwar). These beautiful houses are frozen in time, and Althof's photos capture their charm and magic. See also the Butler Brothers catalog scans.
