Merry Christmas New Yorker Magazine 1943

 

Holiday Greetings, and a little bit of nostalgia.  Cheers and safe travels on foot, on bikes, in cars, or on mass transit!

December 1942 ; in the midst of wartime mobilization, gas/tire/steel rationing and the concomitant”Victory Bike” program, Americans were observed to be Christmas tree shopping by bike. No cars on the cover!
