I found this great "vintage newsstand" photo online, check out the comics selection! Here's a close-up:
...I had the hardest time dating this photo, since so many of the specific series' covers are hard to identify. But I was able to determine that the book seen third down from top right is Little Miss Muffet #13, which was cover-dated March 1949.
That would mean this photo was taken sometime in late 1948, early 1949--and judging by the men's outfits, I'd say this has to be California, Florida, somewhere where Winter is still pretty warm!
