During the sixties,Santa Claus would be featured on the Old Rebel's show and Marco the Polar Bear would be Santa's helper. This photo of the Old Rebel and Marco was shot during the 1966 Christmas parade in Lexington,NC. I wish I had found this photo before Christmas but better late than never I guess.
