EXCEPT, YOU HAVE TO WALK FOR MILES ACROSS A BARREN WASTELAND.
This illustration is really odd. Painted in the 1950s, when was it ever an issue to discuss how great it is that we Americans don’t need a passport to cross state lines? This illustrator, Saul Tepper (1899 - 1987) was New Yorker, and had a very successful career as a commercial illustrator. His original illustrations, like this piece, are quite collectible.
