Great English cartoonist.

Giles, who began his career working on advertising films, joined Reynolds News in 1938 as a cartoonist. In 1943 he transferred to the Daily Express and Sunday Express and his wonderful Giles Family cartoons, dominated by Grandma, were born.

This is a fine signature and date ("Very best wishes - Giles '48. Daily Express") on a a slightly irregularly cut card (approximately 4" x 1.75"). One vertical crease, clear of the writing. In good overall condition (shown loosely mounted with photo corners to a 5.5" x 3.5" card.)
