Claude's Whistle Stop

It's election season once again in the U.S. in case you haven't noticed. It is the time of year for the campaign stump speech. Back in 1952, The New Yorker published this four-panel cartoon by Claude Smith depicting a whistle stop tour. Here is the original artwork via eBay. Note that each hand-drawn panel is slightly greater than the size of a full printed magazine page, while The New Yorker's dimensions were larger then than today.
