Original lithograph card with a color illustration on front of a country house and two people in a boat on a pond or waterway. The pond or waterway, a path, and people in the boat are shown in the foreground. The house and country scenery of trees and plants are in the background. Title printed on back. The card is unused but would have been given to a student for good behavior and scholarship. The letters and numbers "B103A" may relate to copyright. No date, circa 1890s-1910s. 5 1/2" x 3 1/2." Card is very clean and intact except for a few light marks on front and slight age toning. A Fine copy. This card bears some resemblance to trade cards, which are antique business cards and the predecessors of modern trading cards. Trade cards were most common during the late nineteenth century.
