Cartoons Page Title

The Marquetarian magazine/journal these days always features a half page cartoon along with a few random smaller cartoons. These cartoons are always popular with the readers - but, they have not always been there; especially in the style and presentation that you'll find today.

The cartoons didn't start until early in the nineteen sixties, and even then they still took some time to really get going. It wasn't until the ubiquitous Ernie Ives took over as editor that they started to become a regular feature of the Marquetarian and a most particular favourite with the readers.

So, let's start off with the very first one from July 1962, titled most aptly Cartoon Number 1:
