Christmas Card

Christmas Card | Print | Wisconsin Historical Society
Four-fold, copy art Christmas card made by Sid with two photographs of damaged commercial buildings after a fire. In one image, Sid stands on the slushy street, cigar in mouth, before a store front with blown out windows. Icicles hang from signs and ledges where the fire hose water froze, and a holiday trimming hangs disheveled. The second image shows Sid, cigar in mouth, on the tail end of a fire truck, turning towards a police man, who has his hand raised. Card text reads: "May the Yuletide Spirit warm the Cockles of your Heart!"
