Description

This card depicts two brown, white, and gray birds, presumably dead, hanging from red strings. One is facing down and the other is facing up. The background is wood grain. The grain and birds are embossed. Text across the top reads “Goodyear’s Rubber House, Towner, Landstreet & Co.” Text on the bottom reads “Baltimore, Maryland.”
On the verso, the birds have been outlined in pencil.
