The Rover

Hand-drawn political comic... or advertisement for "The Rover" - your guess is as good as mine.

Front page shows "Johnny Bull" (England) swordfighting with "S. African Rep(?)" with the U.S. looking on, reading "The Rover."

Back page shows Johnny and South Africa sitting and reading their own copies of "The Rover" -

J.B. - What's the use of fighting let's read the Rover
S.A. - That paper is the best on the market

U.S. - Ah, I struck it then


Found in "Secrets of the Andes" by James H. Foster. Published by AL Burt, 1933.
