Is that someone who cleans out the stable?


Or perhaps a muckraker?

The muckrakers were reform-minded journalists in the Progressive Era in the United States (1890s–1920s) who exposed established institutions and leaders as corrupt. They typically had large audiences in popular magazines.

So. a muckraker might''ve been a 1920's card ... ;)


Mucker means a mate or friend. I expect it comes from mucking in together - someone who mucks in (that is, helps out, particularly with difficult or dirty tasks) is a "mucker".
