The Sphere Christmas Number - a scene from 1912
Children building a snowman in the garden of their Edwardian home. The boy is in an Eton collar and knickerbocker suit and the tam-o-shanters, sailor suits, black stockings and button boots are typical of children's fashions of the period. In the background, their parents return from a shopping expedition in their Rolls Royce Silver Ghost.
