1911 Dapper Santa – Memories of Santa
America – Circa 1911
The search for a Christmas postcard with a picture of an African-American Santa took almost three decades. Finally on a “signing tour” of the Memories of Santa Book and figures in Cincinnati, Ohio, December 1993 a M.O.S. club member, Wilma Griff, showed her collection of antique Santa postcards. And there it was – a beautifully designed art nouveau style postcard illustrating a very handsome African-American looking very dapper.
