A wonderful photographic postcard of a muffin man. The caption on the reverse of the card reads thus: 'The Muffin Man - his bell may "Toll the Knell of Parting Summer" but when the dusk draws down and London lights star the "Encircling Gloom" its tinkle has a cheery sound. It can envoke the vision of "Hearth and Home" a blazing fire and "Cups that Cheer"; then "A World of Care shut out, a World of Love shut in". "Do you know the muffin man, The muffin man, the muffin man. Oh, do you know the muffin man, Who lives in Drury Lane?"
