Paramount Soda Shop

A great linen postcard with a full-on view of the Paramount Soda Shop, with some obvious photo cropping around the edges.

Here's what the back says: "To every Guest who comes through our doors we say "Welcome." It is our pleasure to serve you with quality food products..."

No Heat

This real photo postcard is of a street in Bingham, Maine. The owner of the postcard did not write any message on the back or mail the card, but he (or she) did take time to denote the two hotels in town, along with an indication of "My Room - No Heat." Maine can be very cold in the winter, so who can blame him for complaining?
