Black and white image of the Nativity. Jesus is laying in a manger, and Mary and Joseph are kneeling behind him. Shepherds and their lambs are in front of the manger, and angels are flying in the sky above the scene. The Christmas Star is shining a beam of light down onto the Baby Jesus. The back of the card is blank. This card was made by an unknown publisher in the early twentieth century.
