This illustration commemorates Children's Day, a day to honor and promote the welfare of children. It was sold by the Goodenough and Woglom Co. annual catalog for Church and Sunday School Supplies around the turn of the twentieth century. The depiction of roses refers back to the holiday's original name of Rose Day or Flower Day. The observance began in Chelsea, Massachusetts, in 1857 by Reverend Dr. Charles Leonard, pastor of the Universalist Church of the Redeemer. Since its creation, the day of observance varies by country, the United States celebrates on the second Sunday in June.
