This comic postcard shows a father whose fussy baby has gotten him out of bed in the middle of the night.

This postcard was glued into one of Minnie Rossow Harms' scrapbooks. I could lift only partially, but we can see enough of the back to learn that the card was sent to Herman Harms in Ainsworth, with the exhortation: "Keep Smiling."

The sender's initial look like G.H. — I can't even guess. The year is illegible, but presumably it was one in which the young Harmses became parents … perhaps for the first time.
