A Glimpse of Belle's Irish Humor

Belle Murphy Barker
Knocknalomon, County Cork, Ireland
1922 or 1923

On the back of this photograph,
sent to "Hub" Leonard in New York,
Belle writes:
If I was walking down the street
and I met your Mother riding a jackass,
what kind of fruit would she remind you of?
well?  A pear, of course.
