Wish You Were Here, from Albert Carmichael
Here's another "I Love My Wife But Oh You Kid" card by Carmichael, presumably issued as part of Taylor & Pratt's Series 565, though they forgot to take any credit on this card. I think Carmichael did a nice job on the art, though I wonder at the construction of that typewriter. Don't think I've ever seen one that has a big glass (?) box on the rear section.
These are sort of racy cards, implying as they do marital infidelity, so I particular enjoy this card for the message that was penned on the back of it: "See you in church next Sunday!".

Charamichael's usual low bar standards are reached here. It might be he never saw a typewriter, and only had one described over the phone to him. Since there are no motion lines indicating that the proto- Cam O'Flage is using the typer as one might expect, one can only guess she's somehow radiating a musical light beam at it with her hands.
I learn something old every day.
