As a followup to Tuesday’s post, here is another comic from page 42 of the 1923 UBC Yearbook. This one features an unknown downtown Vancouver intersection filled with Photoshopped students attached to cartoon bodies. Note the jokes about alcoholic beverages (BC had repealed prohibition in 1921); the bar at bottom left has been relabeled “Soft Drinks” and across the street, above the Police Station is a billboard for “Cascade Garters, Always Falling; the Gear without a Peer” (see a beer ad with similar slogan). The comic is by “Meadows” and dated 1924.

Also added for good measure, an ad for REO Motors from page 5 of the same yearbook.
