Where's the Flood?

This is similar to a 1960 photo we posted earlier. Probably only a few moments separate the two. The animated Santa is in a slightly different position. Also, the black shoe / white sock combo on one of the guys is more obvious. The shopping bag is from Woolworth's. Unlike most of the other photos in this series, it appears to be daytime. Household Outfitting Co. disappeared from the Scranton City Directory after 1962. Here is what the final listing says: "Household Outfitting Co. (Division of Markson Inc.) Victor Klein General Manager, A J Mallick Credit Manager, Scranton's Largest House Furnishers, 306-314 Lackawanna A., Tel DIamond 2-8251." Here is the higher resolution version.
