Sepia Saturday- Good News, Bad News
I don't know anything about this cartoon. I'm not sure where it came from or how it got into my pile of stuff. I don't even get the joke. But on the wall near the door is the name of the office (law firm? advertising agency?) and it's "Millman, Stokes & Finwall. That's me---Finwall.
It's from the Chicago Tribune-1981. My step-Grandfather worked there for many years but his name wasn't Finwall, although he was married to my grandmother who had been a Finwall. I think he was dead and gone from the Tribune way before the 80's.
Another ever so slightly odd thing is that my mother had a best friend named Stokes, but this was many years later and in California.
Such a mystery! I'm sure there's a lot more interesting things I could have written about but this was the first thing that popped up- so here it is. A lazy Sepia Saturday!
