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?
