expand/collapse Expand/collapse Collection Overview

Size About 75 items (0.5 linear feet)
Abstract Ephemeral items include advertisements, visiting cards, fancy envelopes, invitations, postcards, caricatures and cartoons, printed ribbons, and other items. While almost all of the items are undated, many seem to date from the late 19th century. There are, however, some items that appear to be from earlier in the 19th century and a few from the 20th century. Among the visiting cards is one for General Tom Thumb and his wife, M. Lavinia Magri, and among the ribbons is one mourning the death of Abraham Lincoln. There are also a few items relating to rationing during World War II.
