Harry Hargreaves' It's a Birds's Life


Something light and cheery for this Monday morning. The following cartoons are from Harry Hargreaves' It's a Bird's Life, reprinted from Punch where the 'little bird', of indeterminate species, appeared for many years.

Thanks for sharing this one with us, Steve.

I agree, what a great way to start the week off.

I remember seeing some of this work, but cannot for the life of me remember, where or when.

Hope you are well.

Best Wishes,
Tim...

The Hayseeds was a strip I tripped over when younger and I thought - wow! an English Walt Kelly!

Take a look at http://www.tonystrading.co.uk/galleries/comicstrips/hargreaves.htm

Lovely cartoon further down the page on British class system

Fabulous cartoons from Harry Hargeaves. I don't suppose you have any of his Hayseeds to upload?

I was supposed to be studying a bunch of other stuff, but I found a bunch of old bound copies of Punch from when Hargreaves was busiest, and spent hours leafing from volume to volume getting glares from other students as I giggled my way through all his cartoons.

I loved Harry Hargreaves cartoon "Budge & Co" which was in the Reveille many years ago. Anyone know if Budge is still available to download?taskuhc 23
