Snowmen Cooking Hot Dogs!


From the SNOW PEOPLE collection by Darling & Company, Seattle, WA.

Snowmen first came on the scene, according Bob Eckstein, in his "History of the Snowmen" in the 16th century. They became especially popular in the Victorian era. He writes, "The picturing of snow people flourished in the penny-postcard era (1890-1920) when many thousands of cards were made."

What could be more delightful than a freshly created snowman!

(Watch for more snow people from the collection by Darling & Company.)
