Can you tell me if you can post the inside of this advertisement? I want to make sure it is a duplicate of one that I have. I know that there were two versions and this might be a third if it has more that just the map.

Hello Deborah,

Thank you for your interest in this trade card. The interior shows a map on the right side and the text "weekly and overnight accommodations" on the left. I hope this answers your question.

Best,
