Text on print

Many of the prints in this collection display details of the publication the cartoon appeared in. For example OPED TTM 172001. This information is for the newspaper editorial team and is deliberately kept in view when framing as in our opinion this adds interest and value to the presentation. TTM = The Times /OPED = Opposite Editorial/ 17 = day of publication or completion/20 = Page number / 01 = position on page.


Very good for age, small crease bottom corner.
