Here are two more advertisements featuring Santa showing Premo folding cameras made by the Rochester Optical Company. These particular models were sold in the late 1890s.

I especially enjoy the first ad: "FATHER CHRISTMAS carries no more acceptable present than a PREMO Camera." Even today I would enjoy one of these cameras as a present.

    Santa pushing cameras, what next - Could not see this for children but I bet it got some good sales at Christmas because of the ad.

    Thanks, Phil! And yep ... Santa gets into all sorts of advertising. I'll be posting a Guinness poster with Santa and animal characters. That would be for adults ... no?
