DISORGANIZED SANTA CLAUS AND A PILE OF TOYS IN BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS (1880)

Santa Claus poses for this studio photograph by McCormick & Heald of Boston, Massachusetts. The studio was located on the appropriately named, Winter Street (#22). Santa has long whiskers, long hair and a lengthy beard. He is in the midst of a disorganized collection of toys. It appears as if Santa’s  sled came in for a rough landing and spilled out much of its contents. Cabinet Card photographs of Santa are quite unusual. Information printed on the reverse of this photograph reveals that the image was produced for Christmas, 1880.
