John Held Jr New Haven Railroad "Speaking of Food" 1932
John Held, Jr. (1889-1958) was one of America's most famous illustrators. His stylized cartoon figures, particularly his scrawny "flapper" women, are considered by many people to exemplify the spirit of the so-called "Roaring 20s". Although Held is best known for the covers he did for the New Yorker magazine during the 1920s and 1930s, he also did a lot of advertising work for the New Haven Railroad during the same period. John Held Jr. provided all the illustrations for "Speaking of Food", a colorful large format folder that was distributed during 1932 to promote the New Haven's dining car service.
