Allentown PA (?): 1896. Single sheet (8.75 x 5.75 inches) on yellow "oatmeal" paper, very good, tiny nick to bottom edge and two gentle horizontal creases, tiny pinholes at each corner. As usual, the text in the "dialect" associated with the poor. In 1896 these poverty poverties were all the rage among the well-off, as it was a way to "dress down" and help the poor in a time of great income inequality. Very Good. Item #H15903

Price: $125.00
