Subject: Meanwhile, back at the ranch...
The earliest use of which I am aware is in titles (text frames) of silent
movies, but it seems reasonable to wonder if this device was used in serial
stories of "the wild West" that were printed in magazines in the 19th and
early 20th centuries.
This doesn't answer your question, but perhaps it will help.
