The third series I started collecting by Dwig was the Help Wanted series, published by A. Blue and copyright 1909. All 12 cards feature a Help Wanted ad out of the newspaper for seeking a mate to help. The one to the left’s main ad is “Help Wanted- I Can’t Get Hooked Up Without You.” The girl’s dress is unbuttoned. Above that is “Wanted. A young lady who knows how to paint faces. Address rogue.” Card is postmarked 1909. I only need two more to complete the series.
