Wish You Were Here, from August Hutaf


Here's another entry in August Hutaf's "Apples" series, done for A.B. Woodward Company in 1907. I've never heard of a drunk being referred to as a ripe apple, but okay Mr. Hutaf, I'll play along. Were you running out of apple ideas? Getting to the bottom of the barrel, shall we say?


At the risk of being "Captain Obvious," the term "ripe" was a synonym for being drunk, so that's why the word is in quotes, here.
