Christmas past captured in pictures from the Illustrated London News

A centrepiece in the Illustrated London News, Christmas 1896, entitled The Christmas Tree. The artist, Lucien Davis, was a talented illustrator who specialised in society and leisure scenes. Before 1848, Christmas trees were a German custom, unusual in Britain. When the ILN’s Christmas issue of that year depicted the Royal Family gathered around their tree, it became a potent symbol of Victorian Christmas festivities
