Three intrepid spelunkers, innocently winding their way through New Hampshire’s Polar Caves, when they come upon the Council Chamber of the Pemigewassest Indians. Our Native American friends look like they were caught by surprise!
I 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.
I 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)
This large letter “Greetings from New Hampshire” postcard was published by Curt Teich.
The oldest surviving building on the summit of Mount Washington, Tip-Top House was a hotel constructed to compete with the nearby Summit House. It opened in 1853 and today survives as a state historic site.

The laundry, showing old Shaker washing mill, The Shakers, East Canterbury, New Hampshire. I’m not sure why this washing rig warrants a postcard appearance, but perhaps someone that knows will chime in.
Yesterday I posted a card showing the Ski-Mobiles on Cranmore Mountain, and I just came across another. Sweet!
Well 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.
