Fred L. Cavally Vintage Postcard - Drunken Man
for item Postcard44
This item is a vintage postcard with the artwork done by Fred L. Cavally (1878-1962). According to a note included with the card, Mr. Cavally worked for Thayer Company. The artwork shows Mr. Cavally’s trademark initials (F.L.C.) in the lower left corner.
The card shows a man – obviously having had too much to drink – trying his best to keep a fountain statue warm. He has given the statue his top tap and is holding his umbrella over it to keep them both dry – all the while standing in the fountain water.
As a policeman rushes to remedy the situation, our drunken friend tries to explain between hiccups – that his poor little friend is cold.
I believe this card dates back to the early 1900’s. This is based on the style of the artwork and the dates of other postmarked cards I purchased with this one. See item "Postcard45" which is postmarked 1910 by this same artist.
The card is in good condition with some wear to the edges and corners. The lower left corner has been bent over at one time. The back side of the card has not been used.
