From what can be seen on the Internet in 2015, the contents of this page of the Earl J. Arnold Advertising Card Collection 1885 are typical of those found in most American trade card scrapbooks from the late 19th century. In the majority of these victorian scrapbooks, pretty pictures without any documentation predominate.  For the Arnold Collection, however, this page is unusual. Most Arnold pages have stories to tell. Tell me a story! Please let me know by your comments or email if you have any information on the individual cards. Thanks!
