Obscurity of the Day: The Andrew Family

We've talked a little before about the Chicago Tribune rather timidly sticking its toe into the world of Sunday funnies at first. Here's another good example of that. This little strip, penned by the more than capable hand of Roy W. Taylor, was a little addition to Merry Andrew's Page, a sheet of jokes, poetry and other miscellany that ran in the Trib for a short while.

The Andrew Family, aka Merry Andrew, aka Johnny Andrew ran four times from November 17 to December 15 1901.

Thanks to Cole Johnson for the scans (and for that matter, pointing out the existence of this feature which I missed in my own indexing of the Tribune).
