The Jolly Game of Old Maid

card game

ca. 1890

New York game manufacturer McLoughlin Brothers made this late 19th century Old Maid deck. The cards are incomplete and lack an Old Maid card. There is, however, one Old Bachelor card. All of the card images carry humorous names, such as "Miss Snoopwell," and "Miss Bizzybuzz."
