Scarce Currier & Ives Trade Card - Boston And Bangor Steamship Co. - Penobscot For Sale

This scarce original trade card advertises the Boston and Bangor Steamship Co. It was printed by the noted NY lithographic firm of Currier & Ives and is one of few cards that they printed for a specific advertiser.

The front of the card features a harbor vignette that includes the Steamer Penobscot, a lighthouse, and a pair of sailboats

Advertising text on the reverse of this card includes a list of the company's steamers and destinations in Maine and also mentions the daily schedule and prices. Some amenities are also mentioned (I especially like that the boats have "careful and experienced navigators).

3 1/3" x 6". There are a couple of light corner creases and light margin toning on the front and some glue staining on the reverse. All discoloration is greatly exaggerated by my scanner, but mentioned for accuracy.

Regular US mail shipping charge of $2.50 includes flat shipment in a rigid plastic sleeve and photomailer for protection, as well as delivery confirmation (mandatory with 's change in insurance options for sellers).

Please check my other sales regularly for interesting and unusual ephemera.
