Tonight I looked through one of my Grandma’s Scrapbooks and selected several classic Santa pictures.
I like this image. There is definitely a large white beard and rosy cheeks. However, no glasses which are common in the images of today.
Here we have a winking Santa Claus. Again we have the big white beard, red hat and rosy cheeks. Again no glasses. It would be interesting to find out when glasses became an essential part of the Santa image. Hmm, maybe a research project.
To me this is a classic picture of Santa Claus except that he is missing his hat. I guess since he is working inside it is not needed 🙂
