    Picked these up at a local Estate sale this week. These are Original Editorial Cartoons by Harold Maples showing what was going on in day to day life. He had a sense of humor and a way to speak to the common Newspaper reader of the time.
    Mr. Maples created over 7000 different cartoons and I’m luck enough to own 3 of them. The B - 36 was retired the day before his cartoon hit the Star Telegram News Paper. The B 36 was build in Fort Worth Texas. The second shows a Soviet MiG this one was done in June 19 1959 . June 15th 1959 a Patrol Plane was shot down by a pair of MiG Fighters over the Sea of Japan. Then third shows an LBJ flag over the US Senate with the caption Liberals Attack this was dated Jan. 14, 1960.

      Very nice and appear to be in good shape for age.
      Any info on how previous owner acquired them?

      Anile2010 the Estate I bought these from had about 12-15 of the Herold Maples illustrations. it was chalked full of illustrated art From the 40’s thru the 80’s . So maybe some trading going own between Artist. This was all I could afford. I’ll probable kick myself later for not buying all of them.
