From about 1870 to 1900, Advertising Cards were widely collected, and these brightly illustrated cards were often pasted into scrap books. Tradesmen and merchants could pick and choose the pictures they wanted to advertise their goods, products and services, and often chose illustrations that were pertinent to their area of the country. Today, these wonderful Victorian Advertising Cards give us all an opportunity to look back in time, and see what was important to the folks and businesses of days gone by. Whether you collect your home town material, or choose from a myriad of subjects such as Sewing, Coffee, Stoves, Tobacco, Household Goods, Farm Equipment, Restaurants, Boots, Colognes, Cures, Cleaning, Black Americana, Clothes, Food, Bicycles, and a whole lot more. Really neat Victorian Advertising Cards are available from a just few dollars each, to several thousand dollars for some of the really rare ones. A very enjoyable item worth collecting.
