A Christmas for the Birds in 1874

A lovely wintry report just in from our intrepid scholar and adventurer, Craig Conley!:

From the outskirts of Snowland comes this charming scene of a miniature Christmas tree in a window box for the winter robins. The caption reads, "Free winter quarters -- the little birds at the window."  From Frank Leslie's Pleasant Hours magazine, 1874.


Thanks for your fearless reporting, Craig! Snowland is richer because you're out there in the tundras, chasing down sundry frosted jewels for our blog readers!
