Entitled: "Columbia's Easter bonnet Ehrhart after a sketch by Dalrymple." Chromolithograph shows Columbia adjusting her bonnet, which is a battleship labeled "World Power" with two guns labeled "Army" and "Navy"; it is spewing thick black smoke labeled "Expansion." She is inserting a tiny sword as a hatpin to hold it in place." Puck was America's first successful humor magazine of colorful cartoons, caricatures and political satire of the issues of the day. It was published from 1871 until 1918. It was the first magazine to carry illustrated advertising and the first to successfully adopt full-color lithography printing for a weekly publication. Columbia is a historical and poetic name used for the United Columbia was largely displaced as the female symbol of the U.S. by the Statue of Liberty around 1920. An Easter bonnet is a type of hat that women and girls wear to Easter services, and in the Easter parade following it. Ladies purchased new and elaborate designs for particular church services, and in the case of Easter, taking the opportunity of the end of Lent to buy luxury items. Now, in a more casual society, Easter Bonnets are becoming harder to find, as fewer and fewer women bother with the tradition. Illustrated by Samuel D. Ehrhart for Puck and published by Keppler & Schwarzmann, April 6, 1901.
