From the August 1912 issue of Cartoons Magazine, proof that 100 years ago, it got warm in the Summer! Take that, believers in Global Warming! (P.S. — no need to compare the temperatures involved — these cartoons are “fact” enough! It got hot back then, okay? What do NASA and climate scientists know about planet-wide climate science, anyway?? Stick to what your politicians and preachers tell you, who can speak clearly on the subject, as their brains never got muddled by having to study it!)
Click on the above & below pictures, to view the cartoons in detail, and read their word balloons.
Below (from August 1912), in pre-air conditioning days, relief from heat came from the back of an ice truck, if you could afford that ice (see tomorrow’s posting). Or steal it. (Or — if you could really afford it — by leaving the cities, and getting out to the countryside.) Art by Ole May, Billy DeBeck again, and Arthur G. Racey.
