Vintage postcard of Mount Washington, New Hampshire showing snow left Tuckerman Ravine on July 20, 1926.
Perhaps the only thing that could top this display of patriotism in the Mad River Valley is the annual Warren 4th of July parade! 2015 will be the 67th edition of this spirited and uniquely Vermont celebration.
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.
Green snow! Brodie Mountain Ski Area of New Ashford, Massachusetts — also known as Kelly’s Irish Alps — was so committed to an Irish heritage and theme that the resort would make green snow to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. Despite top-notch snowmaking and this legendary annual tradition, Brodie closed in 2002. Please read more about this Lost Ski Area at NELSAP.
I just can’t wait another year to post these vintage New Year greeting postcards from Russia – so here is a dose of cuteness for the second day of 2015! Believe all are by the artist, Vladimir Zarubin.
It’s not exactly a resolution – but for 2015 I do hope to get back to more regular posts here on AlpineStyle56. I will likely take a “less is more” approach with shorter image-based posts to maintain frequency.
Wishing everyone all the best for the fresh new year!
