Good morning! Time to drag yourself out of bed and start the work week

*Helpful dog not included.

This seems like a good illustration for the (traditional) start of the work week. It's featured on an unused postcard by Ullman Mfg. Co. of New York City. Ullman was in business from 1901 to 1915. (Read more about it on the Metropolitan Postcard Club of New York City website. Also, Moore's Postcard Museum features a number of Ullman cards.)

That bed looks pretty comfortable. It's a shame that dog doesn't come with a snooze button.

The artist was Dorothy Dixon. She illustrated numerous cards for Ullman, but I can't uncover much about her beyond that.
