Wish You Were Here, from R.F. Outcault

Here's another example of those postcards that were given away by Hearst. This one, which says "Compliments of the Boston Sunday American" on the reverse, was issued in 1906. As was usual with these cards, the cardboard is of quite low quality. However, the iconic image of Buster, Mary Jane and Tige is nonetheless enchanting.

I also like that the postcard user so cleverly used the text of the card as part of their message. Nicely done Hattie!
