This prohibition era card has a Union printing label, and was printed in Buffalo. The back has a funny novelty doctors prescription, which basically ends in the suggestion to go to Emil Brick's fine place, and have the bartender fix you up!

Definition of sample room: A room in which samples are displayed; especially a hotel room where salespeople display their merchandise for the inspection of buyers for retail stores.

This original old vintage business card is wonderful. It has rounded corners. This would have been Emil's personal advertising business card for his Buffalo NY area liquor, beer, tavern, bar or pub related business. This family has German ties, and this is a one of a kind item.

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.
