Invitation to the annual New Year's Eve ball at the Montana Club. The image pokes fun at the fire that had destroyed the original Montana Club clubhouse (1893) on April 27, 1903. The collar of the character's shirt reads: "Slightly disfigured but still in the ring." The seat of his pants reads: "Montana Club totally destroyed by Fire!! but still smoking."
