Lost and Found Part III
Here, last but not least of the goodies I found in the 1903 San Francisco Bulletin, is a comic by none other than Russ (Tillie the Toiler) Westover. He would have been about 17 when this was published. Perhaps his first newspaper appearance? His early, pre-Tillie style is already pretty mature here, so he was definitely ready to be put in harness.
This nice piece was used as a heading on the Bulletin's Sunday kids' page, where most of the art was submitted by readers.
