"a child with an explosive" and other greetings of the Day

July fourth imagery from the New York Public Library Digital collection.
The tot directly above is identified as "Advertisement for Burr McIntosh monthly magazine that depicts a child with an explosive and a calendar of the month of July." The c. 1920 hooligans at top are "boys stuffing gunpowder into a toy canon." Eesh.
