Father Christmas Brings Gifts to Large Family

Title

Father Christmas Brings Gifts to Large Family

Description

The card is very busy and colorful. It depicts the living room of a house, packed with children and toys. In the back left, Father Christmas in a hooded brown coat dumps a bag of fruit and various toys into the room; they trail down the side of the card and include apples, dolls, and a paint palette among other items. In the back right of the card is a small decorated Christmas tree on top of a table. Next to it, a mother holds a baby who is putting an ornament on a tree. In the center of the card, three children read on a large red chair, and two girls play at its foot. Printed in the bottom left are the words "Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Compliments of H. N. Harbach, 807 Filbert St., Phila."
