What is it ?? Oswald !!!

A few days ago I was very happy to give everyone a link to see a collection of over 200 photographs taken of Paul Winchell and Jerry Mahoney. As I had said this shoot was done for Life Magazine.

Well today, my wife Helen, handed me a present. It was a flat box and when I opened it, it was a copy of the original Life Magazine from Sept 1952.

I decided I had to share this with all of you so I took the pictures of the magazine and the article and pictures. It amazed me that from the vast collection of pictures this is what the article turned out to be. Amusing to say the least but before receiving this magazine I thought the article would have been much deeper and with many more pictures and talking about Mr Winchell and his show etc etc etc . I was wrong.

I hope you enjoy seeing this. I will treasure it.
