ALBION – Santa Claus acts as a crossing guard in downtown Albion during the Christmas season around 55 years ago. The Santa might possibly be George Cond, who worked at Christmas Park.

Perhaps some of our readers may recognize themselves as they wait to cross Main Street. In the background is Marine Midland Bank, the A&P Store, the Sugar Bowl, and Landauer’s. Note the 1950 vintage autos Santa is holding up.
