Hard lines on the hard court by George Studdy

Hard lines on the hard court -- the Bonzolines dig in their search for the ball, which Bonzo is holding in his mouth. George Ernest Studdy (1878-1948), was the creator of Bonzo, a small dog with saucer-like eyes and indiscriminate breeding who first appeared in the Sketch in 1922. The Bonzo craze swept the world resulting in postcards, annuals, toys and other merchandise. Credit should read: Estate of George Studdy/Gresham Marketing Ltd./ILN/Mary Evans Date: 16 May 1923
