Description

“Is The Best Place In The County To Purchase Chromos That Will Suit Every Body Both In Quality & Price.” This image – almost certainly the only example to exist – depicts Brother Jonathan, the forerunner of the modern Uncle Sam posing on a country road with a case held up by his rifle showing the advertising text. This is among the earliest extent of any kind of Strobridge image.  Near mint overall, linen-mounted.
