Herriman Saturday

Friday, August 21 1908 -- The local Republican political convention is over, and now it's time for the Dems to have their go. The drama isn't cranked up quite as much, so Herriman mostly just doodles faces, but he does comment on the divide between the Dems who represent well-to-do precincts (the silk stocking league) and the more impoverished sections (the scullion league). Loving the guest appearance by Teddy, who would indeed have enjoyed adding the term 'scullion' to his political lexicon.


The political conventions were something special for the 'toonists. All the big papers had their artists there. Sketching away.
