1876 Laura B. Webb Victorian Calling Card 1876 Centennial (Brush Webb)
Printed on Card: "Laura B. Webb." This is a wonderful lithographed political or patriotic calling card with Uncle Sam or drummer boy image, a flag, dog, and large eagle. We feel it is most likely from 1876, the Centennial year in American history, about 10 years after the ending of the Civil War. The Centennial International Exhibition of 1876 was the first official World's Fair in the US, held in Philadelphia. Amazingly, over 10 million visitors attended the exhibition, and 37 countries participated in it.
