This is another example of one of the rather strange and often sexist "comic" post cards published around 1908 by the Crown Publishing Company. These cards take a very different view of women to the suffragette inspired cards that were also circulating at the time.
|A typical card by Karaktus|
One series of 30 cards is by an unknown artist who signed himself Karaktus (I am still trying to identify Nos 19 and 21). Some of the unsigned cards may have been by an artist who signed himself "F S" (said by some to be someone I haven't traced called Fred Stone). "F S" cards were published by the London View Company. often in a special "F S Comic Series" until 1908 - when the LVC company closed down.
Any help in identifying the artists Karaktus and "F S" - or further cards by the Crown Publishing Company would be appreciated.
