Going Down The Chimney

Vintage holiday postcard image of Santa going down the chimney. Bearing a postmark of 1910, we know Christmas image pre-dates 1923.

Santa’s dressed all in red but the trim on his coat and hat isn’t white. It appears to be dark fur. He’s wearing knee-high boots and matching gloves. In his pack, we see a doll, trumpet and horse – perhaps gifts for the children in the house below. A full moon lights a snowy scene in the background with a lone pine tree lit by the moon. Other bushes seem to be escaping the blanket of snow.

The front of the card bears a simple greeting of A Merry Christmas.
