Another ad, this one from April 6, 1941.  I've seen these watches on ebay, but haven't found one I could afford...

November 22, 1940 - A  very stylish balloon for the Macy's Day parade.  I have the text to this article too, but couldn't resist posting the picture Smiley

This is from an article about the Superman musical, published in March 1966.  I don't remember seeing this Hirshfield drawing before...
