David Apatoff of Illustration Art writes about illustrator A.B. Frost (1851 - 1928). As an example of Frost's work, Apatoff included this series about "local scamps who torment a homeless man looking for food." The caption reads, "While the dog keeps him pinned down, the boys have fun pelting the man with their slingshots." I wonder if readers of the day thought this was as heartbreaking as we do.
