1880's Burgess & Hitch Grocery & Dry Goods Store, 19th c Falmouth MA


#890

Printed on card: "Burgess and Hitch, Dry Goods and Small Wares, Falmouth, Mass." This is a beautiful Victorian era litho trade card printed in gold inks. Burgess and Hitch are listed in the 1883 New England Business Directory and Gazetteer by the Sampson & Murdock Company.

The condition is beautiful. We found evidence of early Falmouth merchants Josiah Seth Burgess and Obed Hitch, and assume these are related to these early Falmouth families. Mrs. Obed Hitch married Mary G. Boswell Hitch, and he was proprietor of a grocery store located at 65 Main Street in Falmouth. We cannot seem to decipher which Burgess family member was Obed's business partner was in 1883. any help or correction appreciated, email Debra here.

This beautiful advertising trade card depicts 2 children on a sled under the feet of a woman who is carrrying 4 baskets on her head. She has a very puzzled look on her face as they whizz by. Falmouth is in Barnstable County MA. This piece was found in Franklin County, Massachusetts, MA. A great Falmouth historical and surname piece.

Size: 3 x 4.5 inches

I do the best gen research I can, but am always open to corrections. This is an original antique item, not a reprint. A new high quality rigid sleeve is included for extra protection, especially during shipping. You may buy a piece alone, or large intimate 300 dpi scans of the front and back sent immediately via email, or both. Please search carefully, as they are often found together and many may be related. I also invite you to join me at Ancestorville Genealogy on facebook.
