Swipes File #7: Hats!

The Comics Journal had an interesting feature called the “swipes file” where they showed two comics or cartoons by different creators with very similar formatting. In that spirit, I offer a series of mash-ups (or possibly swipes) on similar topics from some of my archival research.

Not trying to be lazy about posting so many swipes, I just come across so many over-laps that are amusing but not necessarily going to make the cut into any extensive analytical considerations in treatise form. Hence the blogging!

Today’s swipe is about hats!

From a 1916 issue of Red Deer News, Alberta, Canada, via Michael Dawe of the Red Deer Museum + Art Gallery, brought to my attention by Judith Hazlett on Facebook! Now if that’s not collaborative research, I don’t know what is.
