From Wikipedia:

Jackson submitted some sketches to the newspaper unsolicited in 1949 and through a lucky coincidence the paper was looking for an artist to do a strip about London at that time. He was hired and the strip become a success, giving rise to books of compilations of his work. The London Is Stranger Than Fiction strip ran every Wednesday in the London Evening News newspaper. The strip featured quirky and little known historical facts about London in an easy to read illustrated cartoon strip. The strip ran continuously from 1949 until the paper closed for good in 1980.

He also authored the “Saul of Tarsus” cartoon, which appeared in the first issues of the Eagle comic and reflected Jackson’s religious faith. His work also appeared in the children’s educational comics Look and Learn and Treasure.

Jackson also became a notable collector of antiques and documents relating to the history of London. The Ephemera Society presented Jackson with the Samuel Pepys Medal for his contribution to ephemera studies.
