Ehrhart, S. D. (Samuel D.), ca. 1862-1937
A large red devil turns the crank of a large wheel decorated with scenes of gambling and with male and female figures labeled "Reformers," "Citizen's Committee," "Women's League," and "Salvation," as well as police officers hanging onto the wheel as it spins.
