'Just Before Christmas' by Clare Briggs Painting Print Buyenlarge

A cartoon of two women trying to hide Christmas present from a child who is inquiring for some food. The cartoon was drawn by Clare Briggs for the book "Oh Skin-nay! The Days of Real Sport" in 1913. The book was written by poet Wilbur D. Nesbit and portrays a year in the life of small-town America through the eyes of the twelve-year-old boy - wood gathering, sleigh rides, games of post office, swimming holes, and sandlot ball games.
