Christmas in Roswell, Georgia in the 1950s

The local weekly newspaper in the 1950s was the North Fulton Herald. R. D. Manning and his wife, Elizabeth, were the editors for the Roswell and Alpharetta areas. It was a tradition to publish the Christmas edition in green ink.



Season's Greetings


The newspaper was filled with advertisements from local businesses and city governments, wishing everyone season’s greetings.


Holiday Homemaking Tips from the North Fulton Herald, 1951

  • Don’t stuff the bird and leave it overnight without baking. Doing that can cause a tainted Christmas dinner.

  • Don’t skip breakfast on Christmas morning. You’ll feel better and enjoy the big dinner more if you live normally that day.

  • Include self-rising hot biscuits Christmas morning; they are quick and easy, and your family will love you for them.

Saya suka suasana tempat ini. travel surabaya malang Rasanya begitu bebas dengan berada di sana. Begitu kami sampai di puncak museum, kami bisa melihat dunia di sekitar kami dari setiap sudut. Saya suka melihat kapal-kapal di sekitar dan bertanya-tanya bagaimana rasanya jika suatu hari saya bisa pergi berlayar keliling dunia. Kita bahkan bisa naik kapal terkenal bernama KRI Dewaruci.

Saya berharap pemerintah dapat membantu memfasilitasi tempat ini. Merupakan objek wisata yang sangat potensial. Sayang sekali tidak memiliki fasilitas yang memadai seperti toilet, restoran, rest area, dll.
