    I’ve noticed smoking chimneys already in this, my favourite cartoon, as in frame 1. I love this pollution coming from a fireside – it doesn’t resemble a crematorium but life itself.Jeff is a great educator here: anarchy, first, and then democracy

    That cop looks like he should spend a lot less time at the doughnut shops.

    Hi there #6—no I do not play chess unfortunately. --A friend I used to work with when I was in Los Angeles and with Allstate Insurance had a common interest in L&H. We kept planning to go to a park in Down town L.A. where in 1933 Hal Roach studios filmed the famous Nanny trying to get past L&H on the cement steps. These steps are still there today, however surrounded by the development that came later. In those days The Los Angeles area was sparsely settled. It was after the War that we G.I.s invaded this area. Things were never the same after that.

    I’m shy also… I love the 3rd panel that looks like Jeff is feeling 10 feet tall.

    Must be a great feeling…

    This one might have been more appropriate on April 1.

    I remember reading that those famous steps are located in what’s become a high crime slum area.

    ‘The Music Box’ was my mother’s favourite and she never tired of watching it!

    I saw a few L&H shorts in a cinema in North London about 25 years ago.

    It was wonderful to hear a contemporary audience laughing and clapping at the boys of yesteryear!

    I’ve just remembered visiting the Laurel & Hardy museum 20 years ago in Stan’s home town of Ulverston. Amongst the exhibits was one of Ollie’s derbys and Stan’s curtains!

    There was even a mini cinema playing all their shorts non stop.

    Around that Time, the Film industry paid for some infrastructure in L.A., to use as ‘props’ in Movies. That Bridge west of the 5 [around Soto?] is one example.

    Everything will go fine now that I’ve heard from you.
