Postwar Traffic Cop
A propos of nothing, here's another cartoon from A Bird's-Eye View of the Postwar World (R. M. Barrows & Margaret Foster, eds., Consolidated Book Publishers, Chicago, 1945), continuing the theme of that well before now, we'd all be flying through the air with the greatest of ease.
Well, not this guy, particularly. Perhaps he had been caught speeding, or changing lanes without signaling.
Or perhaps it was a case of rotor rage.
The cartoonist here is identified only as "Robinson," even in the back page credits, so either he was phenomenally famous, or even his editors at the Saturday Evening Post (or Collier's or Parade or whatever) had no idea who he was.
