Indian Head

Letter I this week is for Indian Head.

In Kansas City in the 1940s a walk-up diner was built.  It was 15" tall and 10' wide.  Today it would be politically incorrect but then it was just a great fun attraction.

In 1953, two brothers purchased and carried on the tradition but started offering hamburgers and hot dogs.

I found this Kansas Postcard, "Big Chief under a Big Kansas Sky" by Mike Boss.

Think I might order this!!

After looking on google I found a couple of other examples on the same theme.

And how about all those gorgeous Pontiac Indian Head Hood Ornaments.  I found a record of hood ornaments from 1934-1954.

How intriging something like this...

politically incorrect..... well i guess, there are still far to much things of those, this one is (at least in my idea) less 'bad'

Have a nice ABC-Day / - Week
