Santa Claus Transparency Postcard

Title

Santa Claus Transparency Postcard

Description

This vertically oriented postcard has a white border around all sides. The image shows a young boy and little curly-haired girl wearing all white clothing. They stand in a living space around a decorated Christmas tree. The boy is putting an ornament on the tree and stands beside a rocking horse and drum. The little girl stands in front of the tree playing with a doll in a yellow stroller. Behind the tree is the entryway to another room on the left side of the card and on the right behind the tree is a doorway. The bottom of the image reads "Hold this before a brilliant light, and Santa Claus will come in sight." When held up to the light, a long-bearded outline of Santa Claus appears behind the girl, along the wall and doorway on the right side of the card. He holds his right hand out pointed towards the tree and in his left hand holds a large bag. He has a hat on his head and looks at the tree.
