From Modern Mechanics and Inventions from January 1930

Interesting perspective from 80 years ago! People could recall a time before exterior light decorations were even part of the holiday equation.

I shall endeavor to get some evening shots of Xmas lights within the next week or two, but other than my next door neighbor and the person on Fall Creek with the Red Maypole tree, I haven’t seen too many examples up yet. Which reminds me, I need to get to mine as well… I have a feeling that more people than usual will give it a miss due to financial constraints. I’m also wondering if Marvin Johnson’s parents (in Herron-Morton) will be doing their put-the-Griswalds-to-shame thing again?

If you have a favorite, or somewhere I should check out, please let me know!
