  2. I'm not real good at reading lips, but it appears that little Debra is asking Santa if she could be "Mrs. ChurchGuy" when she grows up.

    "Thanks, Santa!" :^)

  4. I have several old photos of me and my siblings with this exact Santa!

    Merry Christmas, Flint.

  5. In that day long ago, there was only one Santa in Flint. And, as "CB" knows, you're looking at him here--glasses (the better to see you with), watch (how long 'til my next break?), and all!

  6. There are many pictures of my brother and I with the Smith Bridgeman santa in the late 60s/early 70s

    (I remember slightly different eyeglasses by my time....lol)

  7. Loved you santa picture. I have one of myself taken in the early 1950's at Smith Bridgman's. It's black and white. I loved that store. Haven't lived in Flint since 1970.
