Photo Details

Santa Claus at Macy's New York in 1942. He is skinnier here than we know him now - but this photo reminds me of Miracle on 34th Street. It's my favorite Christmas movie and was made only 5 years after this photo was taken, so the movie was probably pretty representative of the times.

Just like today, the kids got a piece of candy and told Santa what they wanted.
