Unique vintage postcard from 1907 by Helen Stilwell Carr with fun illustration of fantasy creatures. Front text reads:

"Did you ever get home at five A.M.

So exalted you couldn't speak,

And have old familiar wall paper

Take this pattern so unique?"

This totally reminds me of my old neighbor/friend John, who lived across the street from me when I used to live in Howard Beach, NY. He would stay up all night doing blow off of his keys, and get home at 5am and his beautiful blonde wife, once I shook her hand and they were super rough and dry. Anyway dude was like 45 and a party animal and he would bug out all the time high on alcohol and cocaine.
