1924 GIRL WITH WATERMELON (LARGE COVER)

Racism

DSC08973This colorful cover of the September 1924 issue of Pictorial Review furthers the very strange American stereotype of African-Americans going crazy over watermelon.  This is just the cover; you can see the edges have been eaten by insects over the last 90 years.  Note the large size of the cover as compared to the quarter to the right.
