"Things You Wouldn't Know If We Didn't Blog Intermittently."
14 February 2012
A Valentine's cartoon from a century ago
Entitled "The Narrowing Target" and captioned as follows: "I'm doing the best I can, old man, but if I make one hit in twenty these days I'm lucky."
I wonder if the cartoon was commenting on the popular body habitus of the era, or the growing independence of women.
From the valentine issue of
magazine, February 1914. Illustrated by Nelson Greene. Found at
, which sells prints.
