The "Show Me" Newsstand - 1951

I found this photo online, of an unbelievably well-stocked newsstand. Judging by the comics on sale (that issue of Tarzan, for instance), this photo was taken sometime around late 1951.

For whatever reason, when I see photos like this, my eyes grow wide and I get a sense of anticipation I think similar to what foodies get when they watch the Food Network. It just seems so exciting!
