'St. Nicholas and his servant'

Jan Schenkman

'St. Nicholas and his servant' from 1850. The booklet was written by the Amsterdam headmaster Jan Schenkman is special because black Piet for the first time is introduced. Also showed Schenkman Nicholas for the first time with his steamer arriving from Spain. Thereby Schenkman thought the song "Look there is the steamboat," which now still is sung during the arrival of Santa Claus. I wish you all a wonderful Santa Claus Eve! LINK
