Title

"Some Santa Claus" Postcard

Description

This postcard is oriented is oriented vertically and has a solid white background, except for the shadow of the center figure. This figure wears a red Santa Claus coat, hat, and pants with large black boots. Each of these items is trimmed with white fur, and he wears white gloves on his hands. The man dressed as Santa Claus has squinting eyes and dark brown hair poking out from under the hat. His nose is bright red and his lips are spread in a wide, closed-mouth smile. Out of his mouth, on his right side protrudes a cigar. In his left hand he holds a Santa Claus mask with a white mustache and beard slightly away from his face. His left arm is extended out along his side and his hand is open, fingertips reaching toward the ground. The red coat is open and his larger middle is seen, covered by a white shirt. Across his middle is a white scarf with pale pink tassels and he walks into it to keep it against his body. Out of each of the coat pockets, a brown bottle of some form of liquor protrudes and loose bills and coins fall out of his pockets toward the ground. His left leg is extended out in front of him as he marches forward. Underneath this figure it reads, "Some Santa Claus, Ol' Right!" where the first letter of each new word is in red and the remaining letters in the words are black. Under this is the copyright sign and reads "1912-T.P.-Co. N. Y."
