On this day: a Christmas party in Australia

Santa Claus meets children in front of the Christmas tree at the Norland Nursing Home in a photograph dated the 16th of December, 1939.

Sydney’s Norland Nurseries ran between 1908 and 1945. The Nurseries took children on a permanent basis, and also catered for families who needed temporary accommodation.
