"Hark The Harold Angels Sing"

This old paper cut was designed by illustrator Jessie Gillespie. The faint writing describes the paper cut as originally measuring seven inches across. She named her piece "Hark The Harold Angels Sing" and cut it in 1911.

      Christmas vendors in the city streets of American cities are not the most common subjects found in paper cuts of the 1900s. Below I have uploaded a video discussing the origins of Christmas vendors in New York City.
