Christmas posting. Pears' Soap issued it's own holiday annual to compete with the London Illustrated News called Pears' Annual. The front cover was always a stunning holiday image and the back cover a suitably themed advertisement for Pears' Soap. In this case, the cover shows an infant 1894 ringing in the New Year and bidding the old 1893 farewell. A dead boar and fowl evoke the feasting of the season and the holly references Christmas.
