Description Postcard depicting holly sprigs and Santa Claus with a bag full of toys. The caption reads, ‘My dear little Friend, Hang your stocking up for me, And I’ll fill it to the knee. I will give what is your due. I know it as well as you. I know you’ve tried to be real good, And always did the best you could, Now, if your stocking holds no more, I’ll put the rest right on the floor. Yours truly, Santa Claus.’ The description on the verso reads, ‘See me before Christmas at Strawbridge & Clothier’s Store – my principal distributing centre for Philadelphia and vicinity—where I have on display hundreds of thousands of Gifts for my friends, large and small. Santa Claus.’
