MG-271. FRANCES TOBY SCHWARTZ COLLECTION, 1838-1972.
Originally accompanying a donation of artifacts made to The State Museum in 1976, this collection contains almanacs, published books, greeting cards, postcards, photographs, and other ephemera. Among the Postcards, 1903-1954 and undated, are two trade cards from J. B. Shannon & Sons, 1020 Market Street, Philadelphia, for "Atlas Ready-Mixed Paint" featuring a colorfully dressed African American man and a similarly attired African American woman carrying a basket on each arm.
