Richard Scarry’s Cultural Commentary

Flickr user Alan Taylor finds some interesting differences between his 1963 edition of Richard Scarry’s book and the more recent version he got for his kids. Annotated photos show point out the details. The “brave hero” rescues the “beautiful screaming lady” in 1963 but in 1991 its the “fire fighter” rescues the “cat in danger.”
