POSSIBILITY 9

Commercial advertising. The backspace of regular stereographic images was used for national product campaigns, but also to promote local businesses. Some entrepreneurs had a special publicity view made, to show their product on the front side and describe it on the back side.

 We guess this rock should look like a Boar’s Head. This is an advertising view for a

Modern 1870’s Hotel, where “the rooms are lighted with gas, well ventilated, and

easily accessible. A Telegraph Office, Post Office, Billiard Hall and Bowling Alley

are connected with the House”. That should compensate the somewhat depressing

surroundings!  

 

 

This American Tobacco Company doesn’t state that smoking will kill you. SUE THEM!

J.W. Lemaistre from Philadelphia is offering those nice genuine Nottingham Lace Curtains and much more you can imagine to be lacy. The front side of the view is also used for advertising.
