All the different cards feature fancy scenes, like going out to dinner, the opera, or a horse race, when they are making a small amount of money. 9.50 back in 1914 (the earliest date I could pick on Dollar Times) in terms of 2010 dollars was the equivalent of $205.15. This is $10,667.80 per year. And since these cards were published c1908, $9.50 would have amounted to even less.
