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.

Dinnerman’s, Wallis Sands Beach

Dinnerman'sI tried to dig up details regarding Dinnerman’s, but only found references to this postcard. The automobiles are prominent in this composition, and in the foreground (left to right) we have a 1946 Ford, a 1941 Chevrolet, and a distinctive 1939 Plymouth. (the only year for those square headlights)

Cranmore Mountain Ski-Mobile

Cranmore Mountain Ski-MobileWell isn’t this a nifty conveyance? Postmarked in 1953, this linen postcard has this description on the back:

This famous Ski-Mobile affords the tourist a pleasant and easy way to ascend Mt. Kearsarge. From the summit of this celebrated mountain a magnificent vista spreads out in all directions.
