Wish You Were Here, from Jimmy Swinnerton

Here’s another Swinnerton card from the Hearst giveaway series of 1906. Amazing attention to detail from Swinnerton on that Egyptian sarcophagus! This particular postcard must have been especially popular, as I see it more than any of the other Hearst cards.

This particular example was complimentary of Hearst’s Los Angeles Sunday American, one of his less successful papers.
