"Old maid's honeymoon"
Edward H. Mitchell, 1910.
MSUM acc# 1998:84.81
Gift of John Turner.

Compare this with Mitchell's "California honeymoon" scene. How does our ability to get this joke depend on our seeing both postcards? Why is the joke directed at or against the "old maid," and why is it important that her balloon is a lemon?
