Bissell Carpet Sweepers [Recto]
Puzzle card postcard advertising Bissell Carpet Sweepers showing an unhappy couple with a regular broom and a happy couple with a Bissell Carpet Sweeper. Recto reads "Why is this gentleman so perplexed, why is this lady sorely vexed? Why does this gentleman now smile. and she be happy all the while? The reason will be plain, if you can but this puzzle card see through."
The card is designed so that the name of the company and clue in the image are revealed when you hold it to the light.
