Viewing any of these cards is much more pleasing
than looking at illustrations of Victorian butcher shops,
with animal carcasses strung up for public view.
In 21st century America, all this goes on behind the scenes.

On Rootsweb, it is revealed that prominent Bristol business leader William H. Rowe of  Rowe Coal & Oil Company once "learned the trade of meat cutter and was employed for many years in the markets of Orrin Coffrin, Charles L. Penfield and William J. Tracy."

Sometimes you just have to lay back and enjoy the landscape...and remember this scrapbook was created to catch the attention of children for whom color illustrations were a novelty. To this end, Emma Jane (Bailey) Arnold carefully arranged the cards on each page to please the eyes of her children. This arrangement is unique to the Earl J. Arnold Advertising Card Collection. Most trade card scrapbooks show no such organization or purpose.
