A drawing by Samuel Erhart of Santa Claus on Wall Street, for Puck Magazine,1913.

The caption says "Chorus of Bankers and Brokers Just say Christmas to us this year, that's all! We dare you!" The drawing shows a mob of bankers, brokers, and financiers yelling at Santa Claus. Santa is hanging off of a statue of George Washington which is standing outside of Federal Hall in Manhattan, New York.

Here we are, 100 years later, and this satirical drawing could be done today.
