Francis W. Dahl Editorial Cartoons - Patrick McGinnis & NHRR


Patrick McGinnis was president of the New Haven Railroad and the Boston & Maine Railroad from 1954 to 1956. McGinnis' many ideas for change made him a subject of controversy. He was frequently the target of Francis W. Dahl's sharp pen. Dahl, Boston's cartoonist laureate, worked for many years for the Boston Herald Traveler. We are offering ten signed original pen and ink cartoons on board. They measure approximately 17" wide x 11.5" high.
