Silk Hat Harry’s Divorce Suit

This being the time to shop for gifts, let’s take a peek at what the comic strip fan of a century ago, might have hoped to find waiting for them beneath the tree. And what better gift to begin with, than Silk Hat Harry’s Divorce Suit, by Thomas A. Dorgan (who went by the nickname “Tad”)?

The wonderful thing about Silk Hat Harry (published 1912, by M.A. Donohue & Co., Chicago), is that giving it could double as a hint to family members, of changes soon to come following the Holidays! Such a perfect collection to convey that Christmas Spirit!

Click on the above & below pictures, to view the cartoons in detail, and read their captions.
