Found this interesting image as I was surfing for sideshow attractions and quickly looked to see if I could find something on Hobo Nell. Seems the image after the jump may have been a cover or publicity flyer for The Adventures of a Female Tramp (thank you, Google books!), a first-person account of the women who lived a homeless traveling life of "Wanderlust" in America of old.

It doesn't really look like a very interesting book. They'd have to spice up that cover for today's publishing world!

Although $7.61 was probably a lot of money back then. It's more than the Proclaimers wanted.
