1909? "The Hare & Tortoise." Postcard print by A.F. Carter. "The Pink of Perfection: The Fairman Co. N.Y." Postmarked July 4 at 5 a.m., but apparently without indication of the year, from Gibson, IL. $2 from Lois Carroll, of Peru, IL, through eBay, Feb., '03.

This card reproduces in smaller format the print found under Printed Material - Prints. As I write there, this scene had perhaps already become an old joke by the time this print appeared. The dashing horse-and-buggy glides by the stalled automobile. The frustrated driver of the latter has already removed his coat and is holding a dilapidated innertube in his hand, while the woman holds a pump ready for action. The outer tire lies on the road with some tools. Good fun!
