About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

Looks like another challenge for the person who colorized the last newsstand photo.

A study in retail

Dour clerk has no customers, Cheerful clerk racking up the sales.

We can officially change the "Circe 1950" to 1946

this issue of "Zoo Funnies" (That is hanging over the counter) is listed as Feb. 1946.

[That tricky word is "circa." - Dave]

Newsstand Location

I don't see enough clues to make a determination as to where this newsstand was located in Manhattan. Perhaps Grand Central Terminal, based on the name "Grande"? Perhaps Rockefeller Center? Maybe the lobby of a large building?

["Garcia Grande" is a cigar. - Dave]

And who wouldn't

buy a magazine titled "NIFTY" ?

Flip not very fresh

If this is truly 1950 then that edition of flip is a back issue.

It's listed on a couple eBay auctions as 1946 Issue #1

The hair of the woman on the cover looks more like 1946 than 1950.

[Evidently it's time for our annual refresher course on what "circa" means. - Dave]

The latest issue of Ebony

However, Jet weekly is still about a year away.

Presidential newsstand

Is that LBJ in the dark suit behind the counter?
