Introduction

Just as photographers like Charles Boyles have left a precious legacy, cartoonists too have performed an important role in recording the football story. Each cartoonist has his or her own distinctive style. One of the purposes of this website is to identify the photographers and artists active during Charles Boyles's worklife. Highlighting the different styles and work of each artist assists with identification and attribution of unknown images, and provides recognition.

Many people today use images on the internet without knowing their source or providing relevant attribution. This site hopefully goes a small way to assisting in providing some credit to the artists of the period.
