This beautiful old original 19th century trade card depicts a lithographed scene of a man with his wife and daughter out strolling the countryside, him pointing to the book seller advertising message above. Manchester, New Hampshire, is in Hillsborough, Merrimack, and Rockingham County. It appears to have once been in a scrapbook, has been slightly trimmed, we believe, see photos. It was found in Hampshire County, Massachusetts. A beautiful old Coburn piece.
Size: 2.5 by 4 inches.
Note: Hello from ~debra. I have spent years collecting over 10,000 ID’d lost family photos & paper from US flea markets & antique shops. 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. Thank you, enjoy! ~Debra Clifford (contact info on top bar)
