Down and Out Club Membership Card, 1906
A postcard parody of a membership card for the "Down and Out Club" and an advertisement for the Powers Photo Engraving Company, "fastest engravers on earth."

Down and Out Club of the United States of America

No.: Back number. Date: Not yet but soon. This is to certify that after a thorough examination Mr. R. G. Brubaker has been elected a member of the Down and Out Club of America. His usefulness being gone is subject to the Skidoo Treatment. A. Hasbeen, president.

To the woods. Not yet but soon. Walla-walla. 23 skidoo.
