globe 11-12-25 on christmas morning

Dear readers: may you have better luck finding what you wanted under the Christmas tree than these people did a century ago (I already have).

Unlike Bobby, little Jamie would have been happier receiving a well-illustrated "Lives of Great Men" (or "Lives of Great Hockey Players" or "Lives of Great B-Movie Character Actors") than a pair of skates that might kill my ankles.
