Junk Drawer: More Fun "TAD" Dorgan Buttons


You all knew I wasn't going to drop this. Here's six more Tokio Cigarette pinbacks from 1912-14 featuring artwork by Tad Dorgan, including two with his philandering Judge Rummy dog character makin' with the lady dogs. As usual, some of these are totally baffling today, and some are... inappropriate? It's particularly hard to imagine wearing the top one in this day and age.

There are still some Tad buttons out there I haven't gotten my grubby mitts on yet, so more to come!

100 year old colloquialisms! Very cool.

I wonder if the top one wasn't created during the big 'flu epidemic?

Yikes, that's a scary thought.

I would totally start smoking if cigarette packages came with awesome buttons by contemporary comics artists!
