Santa on break

[The counter layout and the sugar dispenser suggest that Santa might be a Chock full o’Nuts customer. The tray though doesn’t. Maybe it came from the North Pole with Santa.

That is Horn & Hardart china so therefore that Santa is at Horn & Hardart.

Thank you, Lisa. I ate at the Automat at least a few times in childhood. I’m happy to have this identification and to know about your film.
