Telegrapher Closeup Telegraph Occupational Tintype & Telegraphy School Ad:
TINTYPE OF A TELEGRAPHER & A TELEGRAPH. Here is an artistic vantage point of a telegrapher facilitating communication. We have to remember that this was the way to communicate long distance in the latter part of the 19th century.
Advertisement for VALENTINE'S SCHOOL FOR TELEGRAPHY is affixed to the back of the tintype. It reads: "How Much Will It Cost to Learn TELEGRAPHY? That depends upon how hard you work, but it ought not to cost you over $125.00, which you can earn back in three months. Then you have a trade. Every man should have a trade. Do we put our graduates at work? Certainly we do. Write for our Circulars which tell all about it. VALENTINE'S SCHOOL OF TELEGRAPHY, JANESVILLE, WIS."
SIZE. Approximately 3 1/8 x 2 1/2 inches.
CONDITION. Bends. White vertical line at bottom is caused by bend. Lots of surface wear.
APPEARANCE. Sharp image with very good contrast. Excellent content. On top of that, an artistic perspective and execution.
