The Saturday Evening Post, December 1939. Artist Joseph C. Leyendecker did almost 40 years of New Year's Baby covers for the Post. 1940's baby looks to be a British baby clutching an iconic black umbrella while wearing a gas mask awaiting evacuation, acknowledging the war overseas. Britain had declared war against Germany the previous September.
A striking portrait of two civilian firefighters, one male, one female. Both are wearing their Fire Guard armbands, long overcoats and steel helmets. The straps of their gas mask cases can also just be seen. This photograph was probably taken in October 1941.
