Santa in chimney, c. 1900

Another small (3 x 5) card, this one copyrighted by the Sunshine Pub. Co., Philadelphia. No markings on the back, except for the evidence that it was once pasted in a scrapbook. This is a rather strange card -- is that Santa's stocking on the roof, or is the boy with the candle bringing his own Christmas stocking to make sure Santa fills it up with goodies? And what does the owl have to say about all this? All very strange, and wonderful.
