An old map!


My father drew this map, probably in early 1940's. It shows the location of our home ("120" on silver arrow) and his business (then called "Pure Tone Hearing Aids"). It also shows the contours of the nearby hill where he and friends were developing ski trails called "Suicide Six." This is before the creation of the "Locust Lawn Ski Club," before the widening of Route 1. This 3-fold card was probably used as a Christmas card or an invitation mailed to skiing friends.
