On the sidelines

Don't forget to check out the spinster and the "confirmed bachelorette" off to the right. Hilarious!

Something Odd

It appears that the Cupid who roped four couples (lower right) managed to include one same sex couple! Or perhaps the woman in the swimming costume and the lady with the parasol are just collateral damage. Whatever, that group has three men and five women.

Pushy Mother

I particularly love the mother who's subtly *pushing* her daughter next to the dapper, very successful-looking bachelor. Grandma needs some some grandbabies!

The Ties that Bind

So perhaps from this image we might imagine that benign bondage is not so recent a development. I wonder what's going on inside the hotel! Happy VD to you too, Shorpy!

Chemical Love

They're all being rounded up like cattle, and Cupid is the cattle-ist.
