Father Christmas and children (taken for Mr Jack)

About this item: 
Some of the most enduring memories of childhood revolve around Christmas and for many Sydney children, the big event of the year was a trip into the city to one of the large department stores to visit Santa Claus. This Christmas grotto was in the Grace Bros store on Broadway. The excitement and anticipation of both children is clear to see, particularly in the little girl's stance.
