    Description

    Two Wanted Posters. Two 8.5" x 11" wanted posters from San Francisco. One poster from 1917 offers a $50 reward for Harry J. Marshall "on the Charge of Abandonment of Wife". It seems he left her in a delicate position, took all her money and skipped. The other poster from 1918 offers $25 for Ella Maud Rigby "on the Charge of Adultery". It seems Ella Rigby (didn't the Beatles write a song about her?) ran off with the German druggist, F. W. Ruhser. The moral fiber of America certainly has eroded since then!
