Title

Votes for Women: Suffrage First!

Description

[Image: At the top of this vertical postcard is the title "VOTES FOR WOMEN." Below the title is a young boy wearing blue short-pants and a white and blue sailor shirt. His feet are clad in pinkish-white children's shoes and he's wearing white socks that come up to mid-calf. His blond hair sports two cowlicks that spring from the back of his head. He appears to be leaning into toward the little girl for a kiss. He is holding flowers in his left hand. The little girl is dressed in a pink dress and white bloomers. Her white socks come to mid-calf and she's wearing the same style children's shoes as the little boy. Her short, blond hair is cut in a bob-like style and the top half is pulled back into a blue bow. At her feet is a doll that appears to have been dropped without thought. She is holding up her right hand as if to indicate "stop right there." but she has a pleasant smile on her face. Behind her is imagery of what is probably meant to be the sun but looks more like a full moon. Under the children's feet are the words, "Suffrage First!" in a flowing, black font. On the bottom-left corner of the card "EMILY-HALL-" followed by text that is illegible--most probably CHAMBERLIN. On the bottom-right corner is copyright information: "© 1915 CAMPBELL ART CO ELIZABETH N.J. 310."] Print. Full Color on cream cardstock. Public. 14x9 c.m.
