Pictorial Review 8017 - Santa Claus Suit


The name "Kathryn Klahn" has been printed in pencil at the very top of the envelope.   The 1930 census lists a Kathryn Klahn, age 65,  as living in Clinton Iowa, so this may be one of her patterns.   Mrs. Klahn got a nice early start for Mr. Klahn's - er, Santa Claus's arrival on the fire truck for the Christmas parade on the day after Thanksgiving.

I like that Pictorial calls this a Santa Claus "suit," rather than "costume."

Merry Christmas, everybody!

I always enjoy your posts, but this charming Santa is one of my favorites. Thanks so much and Merry Christmas!

He is pretty skinny for a Santa! Maybe Santas have also been getting skinnier over the years. What a wonderful pattern.
