|Jim Heffernan's December 1941|
Pitman calendar relic
This picture of a 1941 calendar kept by my dad in our basement, remained in the home I grew up in for 30 years–until the home was sold following my parents' death. The statue of liberty, surrounded by elements of war, is a testimony to the impending involvement by the U.S. in that war and most prophetic in view of December 7, 1941 when Pearl Harbor was bombed.
A good friend was nice enough to save the calendar relic by delicately framing it for us and it now hangs on the wall in my home.
It's a piece of history and a wonderful work of art in itself.
