Wednesday Educational Day.
Here are some selected pieces from Associated Press in the late thirties and early forties. I guess, these would come as part of the package you got when you subscribed to AP's news service. They had a staff of artists and photographs that provided visuals for their stories or sometime even pure visual bits. From this pool of talent came a lot of the early realitstic artists, such as Al Capp, Milt Caniff, Noel Sickles, Mel Graff, Hank Barrow and George Wunder.
