Summary:
Primarily unmounted photographs, plus an illustrated souvenir tourist book on Washington, "Washington Album" (ca. 1890), and a text-only anti-trust broadside. The most interesting group is a set of 5 photoprints related to the Boston Globe newspaper, especially several which illustrate the practice of displaying handwritten newspaper headlines for passersby on blackboards.
Broadside: Publ. May 1, 1899, by the Harry Weissinger Tobacco Co., Louisville Ky. Entitled "Eternal Vigilance is the Price of Liberty" with subheading "Beware of Trusts!" It attempts to stir opposition against the attempts of the tobacco trust to drive Weissinger out of business. With a note about the National Tobacco Workers' Unions at the bottom of the page.
