“Why, you are a funny apple!” from The Bruin Boy’s Annual (1928). I love the expression on the face of the puzzled cow gazing lazily at the red haired boy in a red jacket, hooked on the apple tree. Illustration by Frank Jenner.
The Bruin Boys were created in 1904 by artist Julius Stafford Baker for the comics section of the The Daily Mirror newspaper (UK). The lead characters were young, mischievous animals attending Mrs. Bruin’s Boarding School.
