Canada and Harlequin Part II

In an earlier post I discussed a Harlequin edition of an American book with a Canadian currency connection on the cover. Here's another example. Weep Not Fair Lady was first published under the title If You Have Tears by New York's Mystery House in 1947. 

In this California bank vault we see stacks of Canadian currency - the face of the 1937 two dollar and the back of the 1937 one dollar. Our not-too-bright secretive friend is going to be surprised when he tries to spend it.

  1. Without a doubt the most elegantly and expensively dressed bank secretary I've ever seen.

  2. Yes - she obviously has had a boyfriend who new the difference between US and Canadian cash.
