Before the War
It's interesting to look though a years worth of editorial cartoons day by day. These cartoons are all from the Montreal Gazette in the year preceding WWII -- 1938 and 1939. All the great villains of the 20th century are here, Hitler, Stalin, and Mussolini. The cartoons are by the Englishman David Low, Canadian John Collins, Thomas (Bert Thomas?) and a Popeye knock-off by Britisher Sidney Strube. The top cartoon is from January 11, the last cartoon is from Jan 1 1940.
