Barney Google March 1923

More from 1923. After the first few, the quality goes up drastically - those strips are scanned from the Cupples & Leon collections, which (as far as I can make out) used either syndicate proofs or the actual originals as their source material; the reproduction is significantly better than that of the newspapers (and the reproduction in the papers in them days wasn't too shabby either, because the strips had the luxury of size). Anyway, have a wallow.

Barney Google February 1923

Some more from 1923 - February, to be precise - continuing the story from last week. The quality is a bit ropey - the source material is low-res Google News screen grabs in many cases - but don't fret, it's going to pick up dramatically next week, as we start to run scans from the 1923 Cupples and Leon Barney Google collections.
