Swipes File #9: Canada gets hit by a train

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.

Today, let’s look at American interests railroading Canadians:

The Way Brother Jonathan Will Astonish the Natives

“The Way Brother Jonathan Will Astonish the Natives. Annexation Comes in by the Rail, while Liberty flies off in the Smoke,” Punch in Canada, 1849 (or John Henry Walker, 1886?)

Aislin, 25 April 1986

Aislin, Montreal Gazette, 25 April 1986
