1910 African-American Santa – Memories of Santa


America – Circa 1910

This Santa was inspired by a magazine ad circa 1910 and was sponsored by the Royal Baking Powder Co. He has bisquits in his back-pack and is holding a tray of bisquits which suggests Santa’s approval of the Royal Baking Powder brand. Royal Baking Powder was perhaps the first company to use an African-American in a national advertising campaign in the early 1900’s.
