Condition: glue residue and crop marks at edges of photoprint.; Formerly Max 248.; Title from newspaper clipping glued to back of photoprint; also reads: "said Myrtle. 'We elephants are smart. Like the people of the Rocky Mountain west, we know that to get RESULTS the thing to do is use Denver Post wantads.' And so Myrtle waltzed right up to The Post wantad counter, took a pencil in her trunk and wrote her ad. What did she advertise for - a lost trunk, or a bargain in peanuts, perhaps? Or maybe she put in a 'personal' message to a boy friend way off in the jungles. If she did, he'll get it, for Denver Post wantads go everywhere, and wherever they go, they pull like elephants."; R7100288358
