Thanks. I realize I didn't actually show the title lettering -- The magazine is titled "Chi-Fi" and the fake article listed is called "Spicy McCormick Tales: Don't Fear the Reaper".

Oh, er ... and that's a cow, not a steer. Reference to Mrs. O'Leary as well as King Kong.

The building is the Carbide and Carbon Building, a 1929 Art Deco gem, and the one that just shows below is the Mather Tower, another 1929 and the narrowest skyscraper in Chicago. The Wrigley Building would be just out of the bottom of the picture.

The airplane is a Curtis Jenny in the collection of the Museum of Science and Industry. It hangs upside-down from the ceiling not four blocks from my home.
