Space Age Santa

This one is undated, but the space theme problem puts it somewhere in the Sputnik era. There is some damage to the original. The upper right-hand corner is torn away and there is a tear near the center of the photo. The details here are very interesting. The wall on the left is apparently covered with mirrored tiles. The flying saucer near the corner tear is bearing presents. The "Train Time" may or may not reflect store hours. (Apparently, the engineer had a 90 minute dinner break.) Finally, this window, like many of the others in this series, reflects a neighboring neon sign. This one is oval-shaped and can be seen just above the "Train Time" schedule. It appears indecipherable to these eyes. Here is a version with higher resolution.
