Herriman Saturday

Herriman proves he's game to do cartoons about just about any sport under the sun when he comments on a cricket match (May 31 1907) and a handball tourney (June 2 1907).

Sunday, June 9 1907 --Herriman got a well-deserved one week vacation before this cartoon bringing the news that boxing champ Jim Jeffries was to open a saloon in Los Angeles. I think this is one of Herriman's best 'light' cartoons so far at the Examiner. Nicely balanced with good side vignettes framing a wonderful detailed caricature of Jeffries in the middle. Fine stuff!
