4 Christmas Trees Made from Packaging

Four Christmas trees made from packaging…

This “Christmas tree” was created by the three crewmen of the third manned Skylab mission aboard the space station in Earth orbit. Food cans were used to fashion the tree. This photograph was made from a television transmission  made from a video tape recording on December 24, 1973.
