Flappers Enliven the Comics
Virginia Huget created one of the few comics that identified flappers as job holders. In this beach scene, the brunette friend Gertie plays the foil to the blonde manicurist Molly, the shrewder, smarter character. The strip displays Huget's fine-lined drawing and ability to create engaging characters and breezy humor typical of the 1920s. The prolific Huget created other comic features, drew strips by others, and illustrated books.
