1880's William L. Plymire Store Advertising Trade Card, York County PA
A beautiful old original vintage 1880's American advertising trade card for an old York, Pennsylvania USA Dry Goods Store run by William Plymire, known as W.L. Plymire, Hosiery, Gloves, Notions & etc. at No. 8 South George Street in York PA, York County.
A great piece for genealogy collectors of the Plymire surname. Blymire, Blymeyer are other surnames in that area as well. It features a beautiful old litho illustration of a red rose, and honey bee. Condition is just as seen in scan, shows some dirt on front, back has light remnants of it once being glued in an old scrapbook with beautiful gold gilt inks. A wonderful old original piece! There is no text on reverse.

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)
