Default Blast from the past

Just wondering if anyone remembers Handy Landing and their Quadi Moccasins ?

Arrow Based on Chevy Wagon...

The year of the color postcard (above) is about 1962.

The tall skinny box in the right-foreground is a telephone booth.

Smile Kind of interesting to me

I remember that place well. Those type of stores all had there own personalities. Each one , interesting on its own. Much different than today's mega stores. Nice to see that piece of history, thanks.

Default Must be the Indian "Weirs" influence

Must be the Indian "Weirs" influence. Happy Landing sold "Indian"souvenirs, as did the Trading Post up the street in the Tarlson Arcade building. I remember Quoddy moccasins, and water skiing with Dick Binette. He barefooted; me, not so much.

Happy Landing sold "Indian"souvenirs .................... no it did not .....Elizabeth Warren sold them ... her mother told her.

For the record ........ there is no such place as happy landing and there never was.


Common mistake. For Correct-Ness HANDY LANDING

Default Handy Landing radio ads

I remember back in the fifties when WLNH was an AM station, 1350 AM. Every morning we would hear the radio ads for Handy Landing. Always advertising Quoddy Moccasins.

I remember waking up to them in the morning, after they came up to full power. Back when you could get a couple of stations of TV on rabbit ears

Default Second Floor?

From the looks of the various pics...does it appear that they added a second floor to the existing building with the gas pumps in front?
