This photograph depicts the Worthington Business Association’s 1949 Christmas party, held at the historic hotel and restaurant known at that time as the Boyd Inn. In 1952, the Boyd Inn would come to be known as the Old Worthington Inn, following its lease to George Snyder.
In the photograph, Leonard Insley (closest to camera, with cigar and gift-wrapped parcel) and Henry Sines are shown seated. The December 22, 1949 edition of "The Worthington News" describes that the party’s "principal items of entertainment included the exchange of presents, the top gift, a turkey to Mrs. Max McConagha, and the group numbers by the Columbian Singers."
