First up, by special request, a 1936 Christmas ad from a 1936 Saturday Evening Post entitled "Fascination that's never outgrown", a promo piece for the Association of American Railroads. It was a two page spread but unfortunately this was all we could salvage--the boy's frustration is captured perfectly and model train is just incredible.
Next up, one of our absolute favorites: Linda 2011 magnificent vintage made in Japan putz collection featured in her 2011 tree and village specifically. THREE-TIRED fabulous-ness we never get tired of looking at! Photo all rights reserved LSTAR. And finally one of our favorite churches ever from Karl Fey. Again, click on the photos and links.
