Caption Body by Fisher Christmas/Santa Claus ad, 12/19/1925
Scope & Content Fisher Auto Body advertisement from the Saturday Evening Post, December 19, 1925.

Inset reproduction of painting by McClelland Barclay depicts Santa Claus bending over, writing down a small boy's request, while his mother (?) stands, looking over Santa Claus' shoulder. The boy is standing in a doorway, gesticulating excitedly; his mother and Santa Claus are outside in the snow.

The advertisement text reads, "The emblem--Body by Fisher--is frequently the deciding factor in discriminating motor car selection. Simply because it is so widely known that a Body by Fisher gives an over-plus of value to be found only in cars carrying Fisher equipment". The bottom of the ad reads, in large type, "Fisher Bodies"; above it is a small "Body by Fisher" logo.
On the reverse is page 50 of the magazine. It is the beginning of a story, titled, "Chinese Merchandise," by Calvin Ball, illustrated by Ernst Fuhr.
