Postcard : "Would you vote for me for health officer?" [Circa 1909-1913]

Description

Part of a series of postcards, this card is labeled Suffragette Series No. 94.

The main illustration is a woman scantily dressed in a Red Cross nurse's uniform, holding up a wine glass, next to a very small childish looking man, who is saying "Help! I'm sick! I need a doctor like you. The woman says: "No one can look after a man so well as a woman and I guarantee to take care of you." In the corner is an illustration of a large baby crying in a cradle, and is labeled the "Suffragette Ticket" with the inscription, "The hand that rocks the cradle fools the world."
