Cartoonist photos

It's been a long time since I posted any cartoonist photos here on the blog. So for those of you who wants to see pics of some great comic artists from the past I hope you enjoy this post.

First we have Al Capp in a shot from Aug. 5, 1953:

Otto Soglow:

And then Ottos (not so little) Little King together with Jimmy Durante Aug 30, 1934.

Jimmy Swinnerton 1932:

Hal Foster at his drawingboard Feb 15, 1962:

And to end this post: Anyone who can name all four (or just one) of these cartoonist? A tough one, I know. Good luck! :)

PS. Myself I'm currently trying to dechiper Floyd Gottfredsons Mark O'Polo scripts. I just wish his handwriting was easier to understand...

I think the 4 cartoonists are Westover, Goldberg, Hatlo and Chic Young (left to right).
