If you’ve lived in Buffalo, you probably remember the AM&A’s Christmas windows on Main St. in downtown. The day after Thanksgiving families would pile into their cars or public transportation to view the mechanical wonders. Not to be outdone, nearby stores such as Kleinhan’s and L.L. Berger’s would dress up their windows with holiday wares.
AM&A’s seems to have cornered memory lane. Displays from their windows became part of a holiday display in the Village of Lancaster, which dubs itself “Christmasville“, several years ago. For the first time in many years, a piece of the AM&A’s windows are in downtown Buffalo. Walk along Main St. near Shea’s Buffalo for a taste of the holiday spirit. Happy holidays from all of us in the Grosvenor Room!
