Peter Arno: My Ride Left With My Girlfriend

A Peter Arno mystery turned up in 2014 at Capo in Long Island City. Offered at auction was original artwork of a woman seeking a ride. The artwork is less detailed than a typical New Yorker drawing. It is framed but no caption is evident and the publication history is unknown. The lot passed.

Note:  Can you shed light on this Peter Arno original? Be sure to leave word. Got a caption idea? Leave it in the comments section. I get to put mine in the title.

Meanwhile, here are the usual Arno links:
