Wish You Were Here, from Percy Crosby

Here's one from Percy Crosby that has no maker info. It is divided back and postally used in 1911. The forehead tattoos, needless to say, were added by the postcard sender.


What does the lightning bolt labeled "Hurryup" mean???
Not sure but that (well-lettered) message may have been added by the sender. What I'd like to know is why Crosby chose to do some of the lettering in outlined red, and the rest in solid black. --Allan
Could be the letters were also blackened by the sender. Sort of a remix.
