Timeline – 1996 Part 1

Hi and Lois Sunday page color proof, May 5, 1996.

For the past sixteen months, beginning on January 20, 2017 and continuing until April 28, 2018, we featured here on our web site 64 outstanding color Sunday pages from 1960 to 1975 in our Timeline series. King Features stopped sending color proofs to their artists in 1975 and for the next twenty years we received prints in black-and-white.  Beginning in 1996, King started producing color Sunday pages in a digital format.  We have decided to continue our Timeline series from that point onward.

The fourth episode shows the inside of the bunk house with the boys getting ready for bed.  Apparently Chip enjoys swimming in ice-cold water.
