Black Forest Village
Popular Mechanics, June 1934
A glimpse of German country life, in the Black Forest in winter is given in the Black Forest Village.
Snow is banked on cottages and chalet roofs. Icicles hanging from the eaves, frozen mill pond and wintry background form the scene which is given verity by the buildings being cooled by an air conditioning plant.
Ice skating exhibitions are given continuously on the mill pond. Surrounding the mill pond are picturesque village houses and shops in which are carried on German home industries. You see cuckoo clocks made, canes carved and a village blacksmith hammering out small useful articles. Home manufacture of Kirsch is one of the village activities. German orchestra and strolling musicians give the musical entertainment. The villagers are in the quaint German mountaineer costumes.
German restaurant, indoor and outdoor tables, table d’hote and a la carte. Also grill, lunch counter. Orchestra, floor show and dancing by guests afternoon and evening.
