April 7, 1946: “Despite Cain’s stare, Queen Victoria hasn’t a hangover. The ‘icebag’ protects her elaborately carved crown,” The Times reported in the magazine. “Wonderful as are the works in the display galleries of the Metropolitan Museum of Art — one of the five or six great treasure houses of this world — a large part of the museum’s wonders is hidden from view in some forty storerooms, most of them underground,” wrote Charles Grutzner. Other pictures of some of the museum’s treasures sport innuendo-rife captions: “Bronze nudes and a marble Antigone share museum’s nether regions with a giant boar and undraped Venuses.” Photo: The New York Times
