Otto Soglow: Staying Dry

It's January 1931, but you can be forgiven if you don't recognize that the Great Depression is upon us from this Judge cartoon by Otto Soglow. At least we know the importance during Prohibition of keeping dry.

Otto Soglow was a prolific cartoonist with a special flair for the wordless gag. Readers are encouraged to contribute scans or photos of original art, rare published cartoons, and other Sogloviana to this blog. Did I just make up a word?
