This cool photo was sent to me by my pal Rick, who runs several comic-related blogs (what's with that?) like Mail-It To Team-Up. I never realized kids of the 40s actually dressed like that--beany cap and all!
That newsstand is certainly like the kind I see in my dreams, loaded from top to bottom with comics, more than I could ever hope to buy in a month with my meager allowance (why I'm not a millionaire, since this is a dream anyway, I can't say).
That issue of Modern Comics (top center) is #56, cover-dated December 1946, which means this was taken around September of that year.
