Here are two panels that depict a couple in the process of celebrating. I wonder though just what they are celebrating and how long it took them to go from part 1 to part 2???

  1. I love these, what a good find. Why is it that the lower classes are always depicted as drinking and having a blast. We all know those richies had their drunken fun too!

  2. The lower income people are still shown as more substance dependant than the rich, IMHO.
