1941 Christmas Greetings

1941 Christmas Greetings

Merry Christmas from the Depot! Chester Gould has nearly always referenced the holiday season in his strips. In 1931 Tess Trueheart was upset as Dick dealt with a case on Christmas while through most years of the 30’s at least one member of the Tracy team (often Junior) managed to say Merry Christmas. The 1941 daily was Gould’s first single frame Christmas Day strip, although a similar Christmas Eve daily was drawn in 1940. With all the signatures, it’s fun to see again. Have a good holiday all!
