I love everything about this cartoon, including how it's drawn and composed. In fact, I'm going to get a print and frame it. The two women getting splashed look suspiciously like Isabella and her sister Franny. Click on the illustration to enlarge and see more detail.
A earlier time on the Canadian shore. That's my Uncle John, grandfather Paul and father Jim Nolan at the beach. Paul and my grandmother Isabel would rent a house at Rose Hill, and Paul would commute by car, boat and bus to his job at Pratt & Lambert in Buffalo.
