"A sidewalk #Santa with the Volunteers of America prepared for duty in Lower Manhattan. The @nytimes photographer Meyer Liebowitz took this photo in 1959, the same year the paper reported on the importance of the "Santa myth" just a few days before Christmas. "Although some parents still feel that children should not be encouraged to indulge in fantasy," @nytimes wrote, "many others hold, as one put it, that an 'ability to believe in the possibility of the impossible' is essential in today's rapidly changing world." This #nytweekender, we're sharing photos of #Santa from the #archives of @nytimes. #🎅" By nytimes on Instagram.
