Obscurity of the Day: Adolph From Hamburg

Here's another Opper obscurity from the files of Cole Johnson. Adolph (From Hamburg) had a real short run from February 18 to March 25 1906. Adolph was a perfectly pleasant, if dim, Teutonic yutz -- apparently Opper thought the concept of a friendly German was sufficiently out of the national character to merit a comic strip series.

The character made one final appearance on April 15, this time sharing a strip with Swinnerton's Little Jimmy.

Going to be out of town a few days, be back this weekend.
