before my time



tillie the toiler, collect lots of things but i do not categorize or collate any of my collection. i guess this qualifies as a scrapbook much like the cigar bands book in a previous post. my friend jessica who’s book that came out this year goes into great depth about the scrapbook. some names like felix the cat are familiar but I was never an avid reader of comics; not like hazel surely was. she seems to have been a devoted fan who earnestly collected each character. i am pleased to share the result with you.

  2. Hazel May Cavanaugh was my wife’s mother, She passed away a few years ago in notheren California. She was a real jewel in the rough. She was born and raised in Malta Montana and married and had her childern there. She moved to New Orleans where she painted and sold her artwork on Jackson Square. She retired to northern California to be next to her daughters. I had the fortune to be a part of her life and enjoyed her stories of old and her zeal for life.

  3. I found some Tillie the Toiler comic stamps in a box of my Grandfather’s old stuff from the 1920s/1930s. Was wondering if they are worth anything. Probably not, but curious. Anyone know?
