In the center is a oval drawing of a mother and father with a child sitting in a red high chair at a dinner table with an ornate frame around it. The back cover is essentially the same without the title and the picture is of a knight riding a horse with a red drape carrying a banner that says Health. The owner's name is printed at the bottom (Edith M. Culver 148 Main St.) Below the black line is Printed in the U.S.A. and Artcraft Litho Co. Detroit.
