Santa Showcases Artwork to Boy

Description

Santa Claus is the brightest figure on the card in his red suit; he also has a bag on his back. In front of him to the left is a small blonde-haired boy facing towards the back wall, which is cream-colored. On the wall are portraits, mainly of women or girls. Santa points to one as he speaks to the child. His words are printed to the right: "My lad I've called on friends of old; And also served the new; Now Laddie dear, if you are good, I'll bring nice toys to you." "Christmas Greetings" is in the bottom right.
