Home-Made Bakery Lunches and Meals trade card, ca. 1880s

One can imagine Mrs. F.S. Marsh working diligently in her kitchen, preparing sandwiches and hot meals for workers in Elmira, N.Y.


  1. What a handsome business card. So much prettier than anything I've seen recently. I hope Mrs Marsh was successful.

  2. I always like to Google the old addresses to see if the homes are still there. Sadly Mrs. Marshes place is no longer there. There is liquor store near where her place would have stood. Beautiful card. They just don't make cards like that these days.
