    Both date before 1908.

    The first I'm not sure about other than that it must have something to do with British humor (scary, I know) and a play.

    The second is typical of Americans. ;)

      HA!HA! A Music Hall Performance and the printing under is probably a song title so typical of the type performed.
      The cow card is very funny. There is a type of rural character called a "rube" and it is a derogtory name for a backward gullible type. I guess that is what the guy is! Thanks for showing these, I love them!

      They're both really very cool!! I love the photo on the first one.

      Might it be a case that the first card was personalized, "Cun" being a nickname for "Cunningham", the addressee?

      PostCardCollector, I've not heard 'rube' before. Thank you.

      jscotto363, thank you. I thought it a most amusing pose.

      Political Pinbacks, I always carry a shovel in mine. Never know when you'll find a bottle dump! LOL.

      Meowman, I had noted that as well. But what is interesting is, all that is crossed out and 'written' in is printed into the photo, not hand-written after the card was made.

      Probable match for you:
      Wilbur Morrill Cunningham (February 4, 1886 – January 14, 1974) was an American football player and coach, attorney, historian and author.

      Cunningham was born in 1886 in Benton Harbor, Michigan. His father, George Cunningham, was a New York native and an insurance agent.
      Cunningham attended the University of Michigan where he studied law played college football for Fielding H. Yost's Michigan Wolverines football teams from 1907 to 1910.[1] He graduated from Michigan's Law Department as part of its Class of 1912.[2]
      During the fall of 1912, he served as the head coach of the Kentucky University football team.[3]
      Later years[edit]
      After completing his legal education, Cunningham opened a law practice in his hometown of Benton Harbor, Michigan. When the United States entered World War I in April 1917, Cunningham closed his legal practice and began serving on active duty in the United States Navy. He served with the rank of lieutenant in the paymaster's department and aboard the USS Massachusetts. Upon his discharge from the Navy in 1919, he returned to Benton Harbor and resumed his law practice.[4] He served two terms as prosecuting attorney for Berrien County from 1929 to 1933 and for 23 years from 1933 to 1956 as the city attorney of Benton Harbor, Michigan.[5]
      Cunningham was also a noted historian, author and archeologist specializing in Native American artifacts.[6][7] In 1961, he published "Land of Four Flags: An Early History of the St. Joseph Valley," a history of southwestern Michigan.[8][9]
      Cunningham died in 1974 at age 89 and was buried at the Crystal Springs Cemetery in Benton Harbor, Michigan
