“Militants” 1913

Here’s a curiosity (and a potential conversation starter).

“Militants,” signed by Rodney Thomson, “with apologies to Orson Lowell” ( a fellow illustrator)
Life Magazine, 27 Mar. 1913

I Xeroxed a copy of this Life cartoon from some sourcebook or another when I was an undergraduate. Unfortunately, I failed to note *which* text I copied from.

  • Because the quality is rather poor, if you cannot read the print, the text says:
    Row 1: “As they are”
    Row 2:”As they think they are”
    Row 3: “As they appear to the police and shopkeepers.”
