    Was trolling the stacks of stacks for something to put up as an APUG benefit sale and I came across this old advertising item, I guess one would call it. It is a genuine photo, at pleasing whole plate dimensions of 6-1/2 x 8-1/2. Backing material that holds it in the frame says 1920 but I thought it looked earlier. I wonder if it was considered suggestive at the time. It is quite nice in person - I think I will get it hung on a wall after all these years. Hope y'all enjoy it, especially if you are from the New England coast.

    Best,
    Jon

    Thanks for the feedback, Tony. Just for giggles I keep her in plain sight of Mr. Starchystarch here, but at a safe distance!! It's all a bit Keatsian, don't you think? LOL.
