Santa’s Village

Santa's VillageI know that Christmas is way off, but I couldn’t resist posting this rather surreal image of Santa’s Village in Jefferson, New Hampshire. On the back:

PART OF SANTA’S VILLAGE
U. S. ROUTE 2, JEFFERSON, N. H.
The Village buildings include Santa’s Home, Gift Shop, Post Office, Toy Shop, a School, and a Church.

Christmas Angel

Christmas AngelA Christmas Angel is featured on this early embossed postcard. The card was mailed in 1908 and published by a company whose logo consisted of a shield that’s emblazoned with a tree and the initials “A.S.B.” Can anyone identify the publisher?

Rooftop Santa

Santa postcardThis embossed Christmas postcard was mailed within Brooklyn, New York in the year 1907. The word that precedes “A Merry Christmas” had me stumped for a while, but I believe that it’s hand-written and denotes that the card was sent to someones “Gamma”.

Christmas Cherub
