First up--we love ephemera--an oldie but goodie by special request--from Flickr friend FPDA---a great vintage booklet called "PROFITABLE SODA FOUNTAIN OPERATION"----from 1954--oh for the days when these kind of places were still around.
Cherry coke anyone? Lime Rickey? See more at bit.ly/21FWd9T
That's followed by a wonderful "new" putz house artfully displayed by Matthew Und--love the subtle color palette used here--and then from 1925, a great shot of a very young Myrna Loy.
And finally, a scene from this year's Fontanini Nativity Putz. You can see more of it here.
One of our favorite putz houses ever; a raised brick platform house bit.ly/1nfmPyW
