12/2021: Postcard Exhibit 10: Full House, Full Tub

Where are you going to put all your guests? These postcards, mostly from early 1900s to 1920s suggest quite comically, how about the bathtub/bathroom! And two even use the same photo, but look closely it's not exactly the same! These were the modern equivalent of a funny meme or a LOL!
