OOPS! That's embarrassing.

"The 'Best Story' Series No. 12. There are others. Ask your dealer."

I really don't think I need to add anything.

  1. Clean them with benzine - Yikes! And what does "failed to win a home" mean? Interesting.

  2. I believe the young man, in hopes of wooing his true love was left out in the cold, thus "failed to win a home." Poor fellow had a lot of 'splanin' to do! "Blow into them before you put them on" must have come as quite a shock to the young lady.

  3. What a truly tragic story! :)

    I can't decide whether his trying to explain by saying "But they were for my sister!" would make things better or worse!

  4. I imagine the poor fellow had to move out of the county after this.

    What I'd really like to know is how many cards like this were in the series and what's the history behind them. As you can see there's no copyright information.

  5. Well he could put my stockings on any day - he was well rid of her, no sense of humour tee hee!
