A large group of well-dressed men and women posing in front of a Victorian house

A Christmas Party in Mendocino at the home of Henry H. Jarvis on December 25, 1906, on Little Lake Street. People in the photograph are mostly unidentified except C. O. Packard in the far right corner. Next to him, on the left is his son, Harold Packard. Standing in foreground is Henry Jarvis and on his left is Albert Brown in the bowler hat and beard. Willard Packard, son of C. O. Packard, is standing between them. Nannie Escola is believed to be directly above Henry Jarvis. Note the concrete walkway at this early date.
