My name is Carmela Snelbaker. I am creating this blog to share a collection of political cartoons that my dad had saved in a scrapbook. They are from the Philadelphia Inquirer. He collected them daily and they range from 1939 to 1940. I would like to photograph them and share one a day in the  order they are kept within the scrapbook. The scrapbook is in fairly good condition however there are a few pages that are a bit brittle and aged. Please bear with me as I learn how to best present them so they can be read clearly.

  1. I like it so much better. I don’t think the background should be any darker. It’s soft without being washed out. Well done on making your changes. As time goes on, you can tweak things as you see fit. I think trying to get it perfect all at once can leave you overwhelmed. Keep it this way for awhile and, then, decide if more changes are necessary. At times, we can over-do.
    Good Luck ….!!!!!
