I'm a huge fan of the pastel illustration art style of the 50's, especially the catalog ads... and you can tell the ads are from that era... Santa sold cigarettes, women are downright gleeful to get household appliances for Christmas and only white kids play with toys...

Wow, a little before my time, but we did have a spring horse when I was a kid.

Can't believe that Santa advertised for cigarettes.
