|The picture below shows a view of a portion of this May 2nd, 1948 Boston Sunday Herald Newspaper Color Comic / Cartoon Section. It is much too big for scanning, but I did scan the top section which has the newspaper's name, the date, and a sampling of one of the comic strips. There are other old newspaper comic sections in my auctions right now. Please be sure to see and bid on the others as well.|
The one in this auction is from 1948 and there are (8) colorful full pages of comic strips. There are (10) comic strips that are 1/2 page and (3) that are 1/3 page. The titles (in order of appearance) are as follows:
LITTLE ORPHAN ANNIE
TERRY AND THE PIRATES
There is also some color advertisements. One is a 1/2 page color contest ad to win a 1949 FORD Car. It is from Robin Hood Flour and to enter the contest you have to name Robin Hood's Mystery Rolls (pictured). The next ad is a 1/2 page color one for THE ALL-AMERICAN SOAP BOX DERBY. It is like a comic strip format with information on how to enter. It is co-sponsored by Chevrolet Motor Division, Chevrolet Dealers, and this newspaper. The last page of this paper has a full page color ad for ''THE COMPLETE HOME HANDYMAN'S GUIDE''. There is also a small ad for TOOTSIE ROLL Candy.
The fully opened newspaper measures 30'' x 21-1/2''. It is in very good condition with normal light wear.
