Editorial Cartoons From the Kentucky Post-January, 1906


In 1906, Latonia, Kentucky–a smallish area of Northern Kentucky even now, just South of Cincinnati, Ohio–was apparently quite the hotbed of drinking and gambling and Sunday carousing! Here we have a trio of editorial cartoons from the local newspaper, the Kentucky Post. Although quite stylish and lovely and even signed, I’m afraid I don’t know who the artist was. Based on context, however, as well as the fact that he throws in a little book censorship, I believe the point of these is that, in his opinion, the bluenoses in power were overreacting juuuuuuuust a tad.

These were reprinted in NORTHERN KENTUCKY HERITAGE in 1994.

    Steve, they’re by A.D. Condo, he of the “Outbursts of Everett True” fame.

I.T.C.H is looking forward to your thoughts. Please, no flame. Thanks!
