What Me Worry?

I found the Alfred E. Neuman Holy Grail ---
The first picture of Mad's maddest mascot!

This is a cropped photo of Ritter's Dental Parlor at Northwest Corner of Flatbush Avenue & Schermerhorn Street Downtown Brooklyn Circa 1905.

It comes from Brian Merlis & Lee A. Rosenweig's Photo Compendium
"Brooklyn Heights & Downtown Volume I 1860 to 1922"

The book was published in 2001

Buy the book if you want to see entire image!

EDIT: After poking around it seems i'm not the only one to find this
