A peddler on the streets of New York City in 1910 at Christmas time. I don't know what he's selling but he's surrounded by young boys so it has to be a neat toy - perhaps a whirligig (it kind of looks like one in the peddler's hand)?

A 1910 Christmas - and shopping and merchandising were as important as now!

1910, NYC - how toys were sold. Is that a whirligig he's peddling? The boys are sure fascinated!
