All youthful bicycle riders in the village need do to have their wheels equipped is to report at the fire hall and any of the men in charge will be glad to place the ribbon or VFW initials on the rear guard. The letters are available and will be placed on the bikes through the cooperation of the post, the Houghton fire department and the Houghton village police. In this photo Police Chief Joseph McGuire is standing by while James Lowney Sr. of the fire departments truck division is placing the stickers on young Paulie Colombes speedy racer.

Buildings - Post Office - Hancock

Buildings, Public Buildings, Persons, Transportation, Automotive The Hancock Promotion Committee has done some efficient decorating work in the city within the past week with the result that the town's post office rates as one of the few such edifices decorated in the nation. Ordinarily, post offices are not adorned during the Yule period because if the country were to decorate each building it owns a tremendously high expenditure figure would be reached. This photo was snapped Monday with no alterations of the scene being effected on account of the picture. Even the dent in the car is preserved. [Image of the decorated post office and the banged up vehicle parked in front.]
