A crying baby with text underneath advertises for “St. George’s Bazaar, 78 Lexington Street, Bet. Charles and Liberty. Baltimore.” Gus Ahlborn is listed as the proprietor.
The verso is text listing what can be purchase at the bazaar, including jewelry, stationery, perfumery, house furnishings, china, dolls, and European specialties. Some paper has stuck to this side of the card, hiding some of the text along the right side.
