Wrapping up our 75th anniversary with season’s greetings
As 2016 draws to a close, we’re topping off our yearlong tribute to Trailer Life’s 75th anniversary with a look at December covers through the decades. With holiday themes and retro mastheads, these covers are reflections of their times, starting with the post-World War II 1945 edition. In that issue, Editor Harry Hammond Beall wrote that it was “the first Yuletide in four long years that we could really observe with a feeling of ease.” Beall went on to extend the magazine’s best wishes to loyal readers, advertisers and the “trailer coach” industry, a sentiment we echo today. Happy holidays from Trailer Life, and here’s to another 75 memorable years on the road to adventure.
