Sheffield - Work and Rest 1913

I came across this postcard which dates back to 1913.


For sheer unbridled pessimism it takes a lot of beating. The imagery and executiion is bordering on the sublime but the author of the work remains unknown. I would be interested to know if he (or she) produced similar works that promoted misery and dejection.
