The Saturday Picture Show, September 17, 2016

The New Yorker Cover - September 15, 1945 Regular Giclee Print
I've always thought this was a whimsical cover for The New Yorker back in post-World War II days.  Business moguls and corporate bigshots realized that with the war over, it was time to gear down from making bombers and tanks and Jeeps to making toy mice riding trikes.

This is a porcupine. My contribution to animal husbandry is the suggestion to breed a porcupine and a skunk, the offspring of which could shoot quills at you as you gag from the stench!
People are always amazed at the beauty of nature and its vegetables.  These cabbages are all hoping to play the part of "Sauerkraut" at this year's Thanksgiving dinner. If you don't have kraut at your turkey day, you just ain't from Baltimore, hon.
This is what autumn views all aspire to be!
The perfect table, all set for Autumn dining!
Business in the sales of adult coloring books should top $13 billion this year, up from $1.58 last year.

This is a rare color view of the Japanese surrender after World War II, aboard the USS Missouri.  My father and his ship were at anchor in Tokyo Bay along with some 250 other vessels that day, September 2, 1945.
Of course, you turn to the Picture Show every week for interesting examples of Our World On Parade.  F'rinstance, here's a two-headed alligator from Tampa, Florida.
