Happy April! Today being a time of pranks, tricks and hopefully a bit more humor than the average day – I want to share these playful vintage images by David C. Baker.

Though I have had these signed postcards for years, this is the first time I have researched the artist. It is wonderful to learn that Baker was from the Mt. Washington Valley and worked from his studio in Jackson – arguably the heart of New Hampshire ski country. Presumably, winters in the White Mountains – ingrained with ski culture – were the inspiration for these witty scenarios.
