This is a multi-part message in MIME format. This was a very famous cover for the New Yorker ages ago - maybe the = 60s? - by Saul Steinberg and was called A view of the World from Ninth = Avenuehttp://www.billy-ball.com/AViewoftheWorldfromNinthAvenue.htm
Ha! Bet they stole the idea from the New Yorker (we'll never admit it... grumble, grumble.. Johnny Damon.. grumble...) Yes, this was a similar illustration. Wish I could at least remember what publication it was. Lynne On 7/4/07, Zara Haimo wrote: <Snip>
Might have been the Globe! I recall something along those lines from many years ago... On 7/4/07, Lynne Biziewski wrote: <Snip>

Yes - I used to read the Globe almost religiously (back before the internet.. so sad). Might have been the Globe Magazine.. Lynne On 7/4/07, Bailey Blanchette wrote: <Snip>
So sad but so true. But in our defense (and a weak defense it is), Europe is actually closer than some parts of the US. Didn't realize JUST how big this country is, til I moved (and traveled both ways by car) to Arizona for a couple of years. Wish I could find it, though - it was a perfect example of our local attitude. I think it showed a destination towards Europe in the illustration, too.. On 7/4/07, Zara Haimo wrote: <Snip>
This is a multi-part message in MIME format. Steinberg was very annoyed by all the knockoffs - no one paid him = royalties. He finally sued (successfully) one of the big movie = companies for using the idea for the ads for Moscow on Hudson or some = movie like that. The Boston Globe version probably got pulled at that = point.

In my younger day, a few years B.K. (Before Kids), I actually had money & was able to travel. Plus, airfare came down to dirt cheap back then... Anyway, I decided to travel to Europe. Great idea. My plan was to start in Portugal, go on to Spain, then take the rail all throughout Europe. (Little did I realize that the trains in those two countries back then flew at a speed almost as fast as running... so I got to see Portugal & Spain, and loved it...) While I was in Lisbon, I met a young man in the park (they always tried to pick me up at the botanical gardens, for some reason.. must have seemed romantic to them.. but I digress..) He was very interested when I told him I was from Boston - and told me that he thought that all the men in Boston wore 'round hats,' and carried canes. All I could figure is that he got that impression from some old 1940's movies he watched. Lynne On 7/5/07, Homeroaster wrote: <Snip>
