Historic Funny Pages to Cheer You Up

It’s a sad day for digitized historic newspapers today.  The federal government shutdown has stopped access to over 6 million pages of newspapers on Chronicling America!  Gasp!

Fortunately, we have new content to share, and maybe reading the funny pages from 1903 will help cheer you up.  Below are pages from the first comics insert to appear in the Indianapolis Journal on September 6, 1903.
