Friedrich Heubner, The Swell

Vollmer II, 436. – “For god’s sake Mister Hunzelmeier, why you always shoot both barrels at once --- ?” — “ … why not I can afford it -- !” Cartoon from Heubner’s (the “F” of the monogram here readable as “T”) time in Munich, so editor’s note, for the “(Youth)” or one of the other illustrated papers for which he worked. Title & caption – in German – in pencil by supposedly a member of the editors.
