Cars and Trucks by Richard Scarry (1959)

I guess only white people drove cars and trucks in 1951.  It was the height of patriarchy too.

Richard Scarry did better stuff later. I liked it when they were all animals.  Goldbug, where are you!?

Midcentury modern illustrations are still cool though, even if they celebrate whiteness and the patriarchy.  The cars look substantial.  And loud.

Also, Little Golden Books are rad.
