The Spider 1921 "Ye Ol'de Joke Inn"

Subject

Description

A drawing of a man whose face and hands are black. His facial features are not distinct except for eyes and a mouth. The caption beneath the drawing reads "A SPIDER OF COLOR". His clothes are mismatched and shabby. He does not look fully human because of rudimentary features and instead looks like a doll. This illustration being featured on the joke page also makes it obvious that this supposed to be a parody.
