Wish You Were Here, from Albert Carmichael
Here's a Carmichael series we haven't seen yet. "They Never Come Back" was issued by Taylor Pratt & Company as Series 728, probably around 1913-14. For some reason Carmichael chose not to sign any of the cards in this later series -- perhaps because he was starting to think of himself as a success as a newspaper artist?

... or maybe it's just not a good gag.
Btw, I'd still like to get some details about the Neil the Horse newspaper comic strip from you. Might you contact me at strippersguide at gmail.com?
Maybe you are right, between the newspaper and the teaching position he may not have wanted to identify himself on the postcards.
The image of the man seems to be a take on himself. Though the lady and her mother do not look like my Great Grandmother and her mother.
Thank you for posting, I really wish my Grandfather was alive to see it, he really would have enjoyed it!
All the best, APC's Great Granddaughter
