Chessie Calendar 2021
NOW MARKED DOWN TO $9.99 was $12.99.
This year, for her 88th calendar edition, Chessie is featured, along with her two look-alike kittens, and Peake, her "Old Man," in many of their poses over the years 1933-1949.
After Chessie was such an unexpected and fantastic advertising success in 1933-34, C&O gave her two offspring in 1935. They were, in fact, just smaller representations of the Chessie etching. Then in 1937 "Peake" was added, so that the family was complete.
Peake enjoyed his greatest attention during World War II when he served in the army's Transportation Corps.
