Herriman Saturday

Wednesday, October 14 1908 -- The World Series is now 3-1 to the Cubs' favor. Can the Tigers pull a comeback out of the hat? Herriman has it about right -- not too likely.

Belated congratulations to the Cubs on winning the 1908 World Series!


The bit in the lower right is interesting. The area around the Flatiron Building was, at the time of its construction, known for producing odd winds that would lift skirts. Cops (like the one depicted here) would chase away looky-loos. There's a theory that the phrase "23 Skidoo" came from this (the Flatiron Building is on 23rd Street).
