Merry Christmas!

A couple of different Christmas themed postcards. The "Hollywood Christmas Snow" is an advertising card from the 50's while the Macy's Santa card (40's photo?) is a Fotofolio postcard published the 80's.

The Denver Zephyrs

The Denver Zephyrs of 1936 boasted a 12-car length and were pulled by a twin-unit shovel-nose power car. They featured mahogany paneling in the lounge, hall, and dining areas, and technical innovations included a blue "night light" setting for sleeping car reading lamps and 110 volt outlets for electric shavers in the dressing-rooms. I love these trains!
