Santa and the Drover by commercial artist and illustrator Jack Waugh (1910-1996). Jack Waughs 1964 painting of Santa pausing on his travels to share a cup of billy tea with an outback drover, whilst the drovers horse and Santas reindeer tentatively become acquainted, was painted for Arnotts Biscuits and was featured on the lid of their Christmas biscuit tins. So popular that it was repeated year after year, it also appeared on the rear page of The Australian Womens Weekly for a number of years each Christmas.

Waugh, born in Lakemba and raised in Glebe, used himself as the model for the drover. .
