Santa at the Lima Mall


Lima, Ohio - circa 1960s

Vintage Lima Mall Christmas newspaper ad celebrating Santa's holiday season arrival. I left this image really large so anyone who cares to can more easily read the store names and other little details--though some are still hard to make out due to the nature of the scan and ad design. At any rate, this is one of my favorite shopping mall Santa ads so far!

My guess for the year is 1971, November 26 fell on a Friday in 1965 and 1971, but department stores were not customarily open on Sundays until 1970 so that leaves out 1965.

This is nice to see again. This was before we had 900 cable stations and a gazillion web sites and blogs, (aka... the good ol days) when life was a lot simpler. This ad has a sense of excitement to it as well.
