This was my great grandfather's establishment located in the basement of these two buildings. I collect these trade cards when I can and this is one I have not seen. Thank you for this.

I have one of these cards #

Hello Ms. Topper,

Thank you for your comment. I am delighted that you were able to find a trade card for your great grandfather's business that you hadn't seen before. We love knowing that our digitization projects are helping people find material they might not otherwise have seen.
