Philanthropist Andy's latest

Description:

Vignettes show messages sent from various cities to philanthropist Andrew Carnegie, along with the scenic postcard views each is requesting: a mountain for Chicago, caves in Philadelphia (where the sun is too bright), a river connecting the Gulf of Mexico with the Pacific Ocean, a fountain of beer for Milwaukee, a sun in Pittsburgh (where the smog is too thick for the natural sun to penetrate), a "Palm Beach" oasis for the Eskimos, and a "natural bridge" crossing the East River into Brooklyn, New York. Caption: His gift of a lake to Princeton suggests other deficiencies of nature which Carnegie may supply.
