The Turr'ble Tales of Kaptin Kiddo Ad, 1909

THE TURR'BLE TALES OF KAPTIN KIDDO - Told by the Boswell of childish romancers, Margaret G. Hays, and pictured by childhood's cleverest caricaturist, Grace G. Wiederseim.

If you don't laugh, you can't laugh, when you see the pictures and read the first story in the Sunday Oakland Tribune for August 29.

THIS IS KAPTIN KIDDO - He's a "heap sight" funnier than he looks here, and, land knows, he looks funny enough!

This newspaper Ad for the new comic strip "The Turr'ble Tales of Kaptin Kiddo" appeared in the newspaper in August of 1909. The artist, after her divorce from Mr. Wiederseim, became the very well known artist, Grace G. Drayton, of Dolly Dingle fame.
