Awesome Awning

"Other Awnings Can't Stand It," is the catch phrase on the reverse of this postcard for the Silver-Top Manufacturing Co. Of course, this roof probably collapsed a few weeks ago during the Northeast snowstorms of 2011, where we had foot upon foot of snow on our roofs, with numerous collapses around here in Connecticut.

Note that in addition to the workmen, two suits and Lassie are also up on the roof. A very effective demonstration of the strength of the aluminum!

Great postcard. I guess the man right of the second row is not that sure about the roof. Happy PFF!

Great card. How many people does it take to erect an awning? The home owner is not too confident, nobody is sitting in the chairs.

I don't think you could entice me up there to test it out.
