Wish You Were Here, from Zim

Here's a Zim postcard published by H.G. Zimmerman of Chicago. Like another example from that maker we've shown here, this one has off-register colors, lending it a blurry look.

The reverse I find very sad. This card was sent anonymously, with no message, to Miss Cora Ackley of Martinsburg Ohio. According to the Find A Grave website, Cora was a 32-year old spinster at the time she was sent this card. If I was her, I'd take this as a not too subtle message that she was too portly to attract a man.
