Mrs. McLean Fancy Goods Store

Not a postcard but a very charming example of a Victorian Trade Card.  This early form of advertisement has been around since the 1700s. By the 1870s, thanks to lithography and mass production, these colorful trade cards were very popular and effective way for businesses and stores to advertise.
