The first card on this page must be held to the light to reveal its secret. Can you figure it out? I can't.
Please comment or email me if you do. Thanks!



I have yet to identify the seed company that published this page.


What's lithography, you ask?
Here's a video on the subject from YouTube:

Stone Lithography
demonstrated by Alastair Clark, Assistant Director at Edinburgh Printmakers


The name "Brooklyn Bridge" took awhile to become popular.
Lydia E. Pinkham had nothing to do with the bridge, however
and the banner portrayed was probably never hung from the bridge.
For more on Lydia E. Pinkham, see page 93 of the Earl J. Arnold Advertising Card Collection. There you can hear a ballad written about her and her products while viewing a selection of cards issued to promote them.
