Images of Christmases past

Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt was on hand to see the Santa Claus at the Kiwanis Club in Arlington, Va., on Dec. 24, 1942, and to hand out presents to 375 children like this little fellow getting the truck. Her usual Christmas Eve day tour was somewhat curtailed by the reduced number of underprivileged and the resulting elimination of some of the parties. (AP Photo/Robert Clover)
