The Womanly Warmth

A nice, only slightly mildewed, late 19th-c. trade card for Hire's Root Beer, showing Ruth and Naomi about to break up and then thinking better of it. 'Whither thou goest,' etc., at bottom left.

'All the pathos of this touching episode of Scripture is here,' it says on the card back; 'the local color, the sentiment. It is another reading by the light of inspiration.'

Kinda hot too, I'd say--in that kinky, root-beer-splashed, Chromolithograph way.
