Last weekend, I went for the first time to Toronto’s Christmas Market. It’s held in our Distillery District, which is the largest collection of Victorian-era industrial architecture in North America. Christmas markets are a European tradition, so the Distillery District is the perfect old world type setting for the yuletide festivities.
Here’s a postcard from the Collection of another Christmas market – in Alsace, France:
The postcard’s Christmas market scenes are pretty, but it’s the festively adorned kittens that makes this postcard such a wonderful Christmas gift.
Here’s the back of the postcard.
