The Forty T—-s (Rogers, 1888)

Another octopus antitrust cartoon from Harper’s Weekly. Proof that octopus cartoons can be more imaginative than just putting an octopus on a building or map and tattooing it with whomever you want it to represent.

“The Forty T—-s: Baba Jonathon: I don’t like your looks, Mr. Merchant, you had better move on” by W.A. Rogers. Published in Harper’s weekly, Vol 32 No 196 (March 17, 1888). Imaged altered from source:http://hdl.loc.gov/loc.pnp/cph.3g12535 (i.e. cleaned up). Accessed: 4th Jan 2009.
