Is this the earliest recorded use of the modern, slang version of the word "ho?"
Multiple sources indicate that the etymology of the word "ho" (etym-ho-logy?) is as an African-American dialectical pronunciation of the word "whore" which arose in the 1960s. Amazingly, this postcard was postmarked in 1911 - and I think it's pretty hard to imagine an alternate meaning of the card's pun.
As is often the case, the reverse of the card has pretty much nothing to do with the front:
So is this the earliest example of the word "ho?" It seems crazy that it predates the previously documented origin of the word by 50 years. But again, what else could it mean!?
