Little Old Man of the Woods, Mural from City of Detroit III Postcard
In this charming postcard we see an image of a little Gnome who is busy painting spots on the backs of leopard frogs. This image was from a mural that Bacon painted in the interior (one presumes a salon or dining room) of the steamer City of Detroit III.
