OT: Comic books in Naval Hospital Beaufort's gift shop, circa 1954

This picture came across my desk at work today - A man in a wheelchair with his leg in a cast examines the magazine and comic book selection at Naval Hospital Beaufort's gift shop, circa 1954.

The comics that I can recognize are Betty and Veronica, The Spirit, Tip Top (featuring Peanuts), Red Ryder, Rin Tin Tin, Tarzan, Donald Duck, Love ?, Love Romances? Mighty ? - a lot of Dell books there.
