    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.

      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?

      It's been four years since this post and Santa still loves old cameras. Happy Holidays! - Rob
