Livingston’s Christmas Rush 1953

Christmas shopping, 1953.

Located on the south side of the Courthouse Square (now Museum Square), Livingston’s was one of several gone-but-not-forgotten locally owned department stores. We know this wonderful photo was taken in mid-December 1953, but those shown are not identified. Can anyone help us?

Did either of the founders have a daughter named Rosa?
