Santa Claus 1925

Home / Christmas / Santa Claus 1925

A marvellous bit of nostalgia from the pen of E.H. Shepherd, the famed illustrator of Winnie the Pooh and The Wind in the Willows. Note the  hooded garb of the British Father Christmas that distinguishes him from the North American Santa Claus. Note too just how early the myth of the Lapland home of the Gift-Bringer rivals the North Pole.
