Couple Makes Call with Cats on Telephone Wires

Title

Couple Makes Call with Cats on Telephone Wires

Description

The card, printed into black and white, is divided into three sections. In the far left is a man in a suit, sitting at his desk using an old-fashioned two-piece telephone. Printed below are the words "HE - There's an awful buzzing and yelling dear but not a sound of you." On the far right the woman, standing dressed in a long white dress, answers, "SHE - Yes dear that's so it sounds like a chorus of cats - o dear! I wish they'd give us a chance." In the middle section, three cats are fighting on a series of telephone wires, suspended over a city of houses.
