George A. Best, ‘The home of Santa Claus: a lantern lecture for young people’ in The home of Santa Claus [etc.]


The British Library entry for the original book says it is illustrated 'from photographs by A. Ullyet', which are presumed to be the images for the slides.

The story appears to have originated in the Royal Magazine, 1900, with photos credited to Arthur Ullyet.
