He's Warming Up To Her

To continue with our recent topic of hitching a ride on unlikely sources of transportation, here's a fun cover from 1936 that the Dawl used for the fabulous banner you see above. Frosty is obviously quite pleased to be providing our Bolles girl a ride (who wouldn't!), and she doesn't seem to have a care in the world about the weather, not that her scarf is doing her a lick of good. I also owe TJ a shot-out for this fabulous scan. Stay tuned, there will be more snowy goodness to come.

What a beauty! I've seen at least 3 other variations on other magazine covers, but hadn't seen this one before. Thanks again, Jack. Keep up the great work!

My pleasure, Alan. I'll see if I can find any more. I do know there's at least one more variation that was reproduced in the Great American Pinup but I don't think it was ever used on a magazine cover.
