a few more finds for the next update.

This one is tricky because the magazine looks like it's creased in the photo and the light reflecting off the girls hair makes it look light, I think this is the magazine above Motion Picture Magazine

Glad to get this one out of the way as the large format items on the top shelf have been bugging me

I'm glad you found that, too! Not just for the obvious reason of wanting to complete the picture, but it was also nagging at me! LOL! I could tell it was an atlas, but I wasn't able to turn it up in any of my searches for it.

Cool!

I think this is what's above the "Western Trails" pulp on the bottom display. What do you guys think?

That Titter magazine was tricky to fit in the pic.

I think this one might be even trickier - it's quite curved to the right hand side

I just realized that the pulp on the left of that spot is another copy of the "Blue Ribbon Western."

The "Leading Western" just doesn't quite seem to fit. I did a search of Western pulps and found this scan of "Lariat" from September 1945. While it's hard to match things up perfectly, it seems to me that all the "pieces" match...

Yes, the leaping figure seems to be a better match (thumbsu

Here is a list of other Western pulps with photos @ philsp.com that have not been located on the shelves. Try to have a look and see if I missed where they might be.

Mammoth Western - Sept.

Masked Rider Western - July or Sept.

Popular Western - July or Sept.

Range Riders Western - Summer

Rio Kid Western - Summer

Rodeo Romances - Summer

Western Action - August

Western Story - July or August

Lariat Story - which you just placed

Frontier Stories - Summer 

Northwest Romances - Summer

And I just solved where the Leading might actually be! Check for the Leading Western as the one behind the Thrilling Western. The hat and the guy on the horse to its right is a match -
