Caption Ralph Stein Bugatti snowmobile cartoon for George C. Rand
Scope & Content Ralph Stein Bugatti snowmobile cartoon. A man and woman in a half-track snowmobile are stoppe at a signpost showing Buenos Aires to their rear and Capetown ahead of them. Apparently asking for directions, the man is showing a map to a penguin, which shrugs and rolls its eyes.

The cartoon is signed "Ralph Stein", and underneath is a written "To George Rand with best wishes - Ralph Stein". On the reverse, written in blue ink: "To the Owls Head Foundation, with best wishes, from George C. Rand & Ralph Stein (in absentia)".
