    2/15/18 This poster (?) measures 11 x 15 inches and has me very puzzled. I don't even remember where or when I acquired it..I love paper memorabilia.
    I did a search for Barney Google and Sparkplug (1923) but did not find this particular piece. At the lower right as shown in pictures is a printed signature "Clements".
    Does anyone know anything about this and the apparent artist?
    Note the spelling on the animal.. some letters are turned.
    As usual, thanks for any help !

      Oh and a little correction on the date for that would be 1919!!!
