Printed on Card: Laura B. Webb. This is a wonderful litho 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.
Wiki says: "The Centennial International Exhibition of 1876, the first official World's Fair in the United States, was held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, from May 10 to November 10, 1876, to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence in Philadelphia. Officially named the International Exhibition of Arts, Manufactures and Products of the Soil and Mine, it was held in Fairmount Park along the Schuylkill River on fairgrounds designed by Herman J. Schwarzmann. Nearly 10 million visitors attended the exhibition and thirty-seven countries participated in it."
