November 2004

The Louisiana Division's Rare Vertical File contains more than 75 business cards, most of them from the period around 1900. Then, as now, these cards were used as a form of advertisement by individuals and businesses. These days, they also give us a glimpse into the varied commercial life of the city in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
