A very special Doernbecher visitor

As the year draws to a close and holiday celebrations of all kinds fill our calendars, I'd like to take a moment to share with you, dear readers, one of my favorite photographs in our collections. It depicts a very special visitor to what appears to be the old Doernbecher Memorial Children's Hospital, circa 1920s-1930s: 
Santa! He even brought along an adult-sized elf and a kid-sized reindeer for good measure. I sent this picture to a few colleagues when I came across it, and the consensus is, this is obviously the real Santa...

Happy Holidays, everyone!
