This Victorian Trade Card is advertising the Grand Central clothing company operated by Streeter, Brimmer & Olean. The company sold both ready made and custom menswear. The business was located in Watertown, New York and had existed there since 1823. It is commonly said and written that many dog owners look amazingly like their dogs. This trade card humorously gives an example by showing a dog owner that closely resembles his bulldog. The card measures about 3 1/4″ x 5 1/8″.  (SOLD)

  1. Sorry to hijack an older post but the last week or so, when I click on the email link to your post I get this message “Sorry, no posts matched your criteria.”

    • You are the first person to report this problem. I am sorry for the difficulty. Does the link not work for all of my recent posts? I just published a RPPC of Dorothy Ward. Did you get it? Thanks for letting me know about the problem. I wonder if others are experiencing the same difficulties,

  2. I got that message once then also, but now the Dorothy Ward ones are fine.
