A Whiff from Hell. "How to Build up the Saloon Business."
NA. Very Good. A pro-Prohibition, anti-alcohol card which would have been passed on perhaps on the street by Temperance activists around 1900. N.d., circa 1900, based on the photo of four boys, probably brothers, in a line from youngest to eldest, on one side. The card's point is that the alcohol industry is attempting to seduce young boys into its fold in order to secure a market for their product in the future. On the flip side of the photo is presented a long excerpt from a speech supposedly given at a meeting of teh State Liquor Dealers of Ohio advocating that they do "missionary work" among boys to turn them into future drinkers. "Above all things create appetite," the speech exhorts. Small tear.
