The Janet A. Ginsburg Chicago Tribune Collection

"Gimme a lift, mister!"

Cartoon by Carey Orr depicts a man, "gas tax," holding a roller, "hard roads for big land owners with political pull," standing next to a man in a car, "city flivver owner," that already has an "Illinois auto license tax." Standing behind them is a "big land owner" next to a sign reading: "for sale country estate per acre $1,000."
