  • Description

    The Adelaide Railway station sees the arrival of some very excited young people on one special morning every year. The Schloesser family -- new settlers from Holland -- were among the crowds this year for the big occasion, the day when white-haired Santa Claus arrives in Adelaide to greet the scenes of thousands of children, November 8.

    Mrs. Schloesser and young Hans had a chat with Old King Cole, while a shy but happy Anna was entertained by Father Christmas.

    On Adelaide's Christmas Pageant Day, hosts of fairy tale characters come to life and parade gaily through the streets. The procession marks the beginning of the Christmas season. It's a children's dreamland come true.

    The Adelaide Christmas Pageant, sponsored by the firm of John Martins, has won renown throughout the world as one of the most imaginative parades of its kind.
