Victorian Whimsy: Santa Has Landed!

An illustration that originally appeared in the December 1892 issue of St. Nicholas Magazine. It shows a stern-looking Santa Claus with his sack of toys, landing in a fireplace hung with stockings large and small. The tiles surrounding the fireplace are decorated with an amazing array of fanciful scenes and mythical creatures.
