Above, today's artifact, a 1939 New York City brochure. It was printed and distributed to those who advertised in it, in this case, Woolworth's. What is amazing about it is its size, nearly 5 foot by 2 foot when unfurled. There is plenty of information to absorb, and for the Tudor City fan, a six-panel ad.
Of course, the big news is the 1939 New York World's Fair, and thus the largest picture is an aerial view of Tudor City and the Fair:
After that, the Fair was forgotten in favor of the countless wonders of Tudor City. Still, there were two things that caught our eye.
. . . while no doubt the silliest was the sad copy above, somewhat saved by a map of the community.
