Decar posed with a rolled newspaper in hand, sitting on a backless chair and small foot stool (?) to prop him higher. The back has a note left by a girl named Jewel. “Daddy, hurry and come and see me for I am lonesome. Jewel.”
What a sad note…
This RPPC is *beat up* but had potential. I’m quite happy with how it came out. It was cut and framed which left residue on top of the picture itself. It also has some ink and other various stains.This is the original, untouched:
