Send a Salami from Kat'z Delicatessen
An employee of Katz's Delicatessen in New York's Lower East Side directs staff during a busy lunch hour. The deli's slogan since WWII has been, "Send a Salami to Your Boy in the Army." The deli still sends salami all over the world. The image of a hardworking New Yorker, at a legendary deli, captures an inherent part of the cities culture and history.
