“A May Melange”: Tigwissel Tuesdays # 42.5

Since we’re on the cusp of Winter, what better time to run “A May Melange”, by artist Livingston Hopkins? From the front page of the May 1st, 1876 issue of the (New York) Daily Graphic, why, on Earth, am I running this page that clearly has no scientific element?

Because, look towards the figure, bottom center. At one point, I was uncertain if that might not be a cameo appearance by Professor Tigwissel. I’ve pretty much concluded it is not. But still, for some idiot reason, I can’t let go of the slightest chance, and so here it is.

Click on the above page, to view the cartoons in detail, and read their captions.
