Herriman Saturday

Sunday, December 29 1907 -- The year comes to a close, marking George Herriman's first full calendar year at the LA Examiner. The top cartoon, a full page width dilly that ably marks the occasion, is about the upcoming featherweight championship bout between Abe Attell and challenger Owen Moran, but I need not tell you more since for once I was able to preserve the complete news story as part of the image.

The second cartoon commemorates the Jonathan Club's annual Jonathan Jinks revels, which apparently featured quite a bit of cross-dressing by L.A.'s rich set.
