Circa 1939, Times Square, Manhattan, NY: A great multitude of New Yorkers turned out today for the great annual free Thanksgiving show staged up by R.H. Macy’s department store. The parade was up to the minute with the giant replicas of comic strip and movie charactors that never fail to make a hit. Here is a view of the Tin-Man from the Wizard of OZ made from the sixth story of a Times Square building as the parade went past. — Image by © Bettmann/CORBIS
