It's W J GRAHAM, not W G Graham, and it was not based on a cartoon - that's an urban myth. In fact it was more likely the cartoonist saw it and created the cartoon. One doesn't simply whip up a design, test, and patent in 3 weeks!!! Also his brother S C Graham was involved as well as they owned the business together. It was in Enfield.
It was patented in 1903 and the patent was sold in 1904.
I am his great-great-niece.
Thank you
