Vintage Radium-Tainted Tranfiguration Souvenir Card

"And Jesus was transfigured before them and his face did shine like the sun, and his raiment was white as the Light." - Matthew 17:2
My tireless pal Tim Caldwell sent me this vintage card. I'd already put it really close to my face to see if I could detect the glow, before taking it in the dark rest room with my UV lamp to photograph it. I didn't lick it, so I'm hoping the radium exposure doesn't give me some kind of face cancer. Click on the pictures to see them larger!

"Blue-Eyed Jew" ???

1970 Blue-Collar Rest Room Sketch

Found this sketch in a book I bought at a resale a while back. I consider it folk-art. Some hard-working assembly-line guy took the time to sketch the inside of the rest room at the plant.
