"Imaginary Photographs"

Illustrating "Can We Foretell the Future?" in the December 1914 issue of McClure's. "She was found with a Queen of Clubs pinned to her breast by a dagger which had transfixed her heart."

Whooaaa!

We have (for 1914) a major wardrobe malfunction here!

No Models Harmed

but a perfectly good deck of cards has been rendered useless.

If one were looking for an illustration for the dictionary definition of "lurid," I think this might do handsomely.

The Princess Bride

This photo immediately brought to mind the line, "There's a shortage of perfect breasts in this world, it would be a pity to damage yours."

Kramer!!!!!!!!

I would be willing to wager that the model did not use this pic for her holiday card.
