I spent part of the day mushing about the frozen steppes of Wisconsin, looting the West Bend antique show of a nice old mahogany picture frame, and checking out a thrift shop and two antique malls in Milwaukee. Nothing I can't do without at the latter, but the frame will be handy for an 1880ish double page newspaper woodblock print of a couple of chick-type persons in a dory, all duded up in bustles and big hats, shooting seagulls.
(Do chick-type persons get duded up? They don't get chicked up, at least so far as I know. Perhaps the linguisticly inclined would like to contribute in the Comments?)
Anyway, Hef wasn't the first publisher to put a picture of curvy females in his mag. He did forget the double-barreled shotguns tho. Well, and the bustles, too, of course.
