I don't know how many "dyed in the wool" members like myself know of the existence of this fabulous cover but, here it is for your viewing pleasure. Not many hobbies of old ever make it on the front cover of what was once a well known magazine.
I can see myself sitting on that stool being a young naturalist every time I look at this. I'm sure a number of you can also...
Quite a coincidence! I acquired a near mint copy of this very same magazine issue last winter... also a very rare, mint advertising cover (the cover only printed on heavy cardboard & displayed at news stands to let the readers know this issue was available)... these are much rarer than the mag.. Those were the days when magazines were substantial & huge physically... haha & cheap too (1951 though!). I took the ad., cardboard copy to Staples & had it professionally color copied & have it mounted on my wall. Originals are stored in the dark, pressed flat. I purchased both of my copies on Ebay ($55.00 USD for the ad. card & $30.00 USD for the actual mag.) Thanks for posting.... now try finding an original, 1912, April copy of Life magazine, with the famous "Flapper" cover (lady dancer with tiger swallowtail-likel wings... tons of modern copies available online... but originals.... have yet to find one!). Thanks for posting.

Harkens back to a simpler time without Facebook and other time wastes. When kids played at a popular place called “outdoors” and science was a hobby not some obscure class in school that was less important than Sensitivity class.
And there was but one ssp of tiger swallowtail, and one ssp of many fritillaries, etc. and the fish cops were friendly and helpful
