Item #4346 [Yukon] Circa 1942 Alaska Highway Christmas Gag Card. Army Corps of Engineers?

[Yukon] Circa 1942 Alaska Highway Christmas Gag Card

Alaska: n.p. [Army Corps of Engineers?], [1942]. Ephemera. Shortly after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, the Army Corps of Engineers started and finished building 1600 miles of highway to Alaska. The 10,000 strong Corps did it in just over eight months with much help from Canadians. This humerous Christmas greeting was likely sent shortly after it's completion. A 9.25 x 8 inch printed sheet folded 2 times to make a humerous Christmas greeting gag card. A cutout provides the gag of a cow's face being transformed into a naked woman with a dairy business as the punchline. Card is complete w. soil, folds and tears. It was obviously carried around in a workman's pocket to provide comic relief. Acceptable. Item #4346

An uncommon piece of Alaska Highway ephemera.
