Superman debuts in Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade...
Item # 611782
November 22, 1940
THE NEW YORK TIMES, November 22, 1940 The top of page 18 has one column heads reading: "SUPERMAN STRUTS IN MACY PARADE", "His 23-Foot Chest and 8-Foot Smirk Delight the Throngs Lining Sidewalks" and more with a nice four column photo of the famous balloon floating through Times Square during the parade. Also another photo shows children standing along the street.
This was the debut of Superman and to this day is still considered the largest balloon ever to be part of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Great to have in this famous New York City title.
PLEASE NOTE: This issue does contain many cut-outs and slices, however the page containing the Superman content is unaffected.
Complete in 40 pages.
