Portrait of Charlotte Perkins Gilman and George Houghton Gilman, inscribed with a poem.

Inscription: Recto: Happy New Year Come in again [arrow]; Caption: [on mount recto:] The tintype man and his picture machine / Says they to themselves impressively / "Will take a snap at these city swells / On our own little spot of green". / But the Long Island chicks or the country air / Toyed with the tempers of both for fair / And gave us a regular country pair / A simpering maid and a Reuben's stare. The End [on mount verso:] Mr. and Mrs. G. H. Gilman, 313 West 82nd St. New York City [hand-made cancellation:] Jamaica Village Jan. 1 1909

From the Charlotte Perkins Gilman Papers 177.
