Description

This card shows pink and gray flowers in the foreground and a hazy mountain in the background.
The verso is text reading “Compliments of J. C. Northcraft, Druggist and Pharmacist.” This purveyor sells “fine toilet articles, perfumes, ladies satchels, &c.” There is a vase holding a bare branch with birds perched on it to the left of the text.
