This is a great old Lansburgh family run business piece. There is info available on the history of this famous department store at wiki which states: The first store, at 7th & E Streets, NW, in Washington, D.C. opened on October 30, 1860. The founders were James & Gustav Lansburgh. The company was known initially for supplying the black crepe used for the funeral of assassinated President Abraham Lincoln.
A beautiful and original antique vintage family piece.
SIZE: 4 x 2.5 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)
