Object Name Postcard
Description Postcard depicting a boy in overalls and a cap with a fishing pole and a stringer of fresh-caught fish. The caption reads, ‘Sportsman in Dixieland’. The description on the verso reads, ‘See, one scaly fish—one finny, Captured by this pickaninny—Soon to be with ashcake on a dish; Mammy Sue will heat the skillet, And with Cato’s luck she’ll fill it – “Hurry chillum, git you’ bread ‘n fish!”’
