Sweeney & Son, by Al Posen

Al Posen (Alvah Posen) was the artist of the newspaper comic 'Sweeney and Son', which first appeared in the Chicago Tribune in 1933. Before this, he had already done the feature 'Them Days are Gone Forever (1925-27, and 1937-45). 'Sweeney and Son' ran as a Sunday page until the end of the 1950s, and it featured a four-panel gag at the bottom, called 'Jinglet'. Al Posen was also associated with the Marx Brothers.
