Home Sweet Home
Valentine card


Publisher: Unknown




Miniature-sized comic valentine in the design of a book of music which opens to reveal a comic scene inside. The front cover of the 'book' has a lithographed design in red ink with a blue border. The title is printed at upper centre: HOME, / SWEET HOME, with two staves of music below. The book opens to show a coloured lithographic interior scene of a terrified-looking man in his shirt sleeves holding a baby on his lap whilst confronted by a woman brandishing an umbrella. One of a series of miniature comic music book valentines. See also P.14412-R-114, which is mounted on the same album leaf.
