Cardboard stock 7" x 9" 1907 Pickering's Wagner. It seems this is a 1 card set distributed by Pickering's Furniture Pitts.



“Born just thirty-seven years ago, in a storeroom so small that "you had to back out to the sidewalk to turn around."
But now--Pickering's have forged to the front as the "largest credit furniture and carpet house in the world."
Mention "Pickering's" anywhere within a several-hundred-mile radius of Pittsburgh and hear how quickly some one answers, "Your credit's good" or "Nuf ced!"
The reason for the unprecedented growth of the business is as well known as Pickering's popular trade-mark expressions: fair dealing, nothing else. That means the best possible goods at the lowest prices consistent with a living profit; a hearty willingness to extend the people credit; an honest, wholesome way of treating customers after the goods have been delivered.
At Tenth Street and Penn Avenue you will find furniture, carpets, rugs, draperies, gas and coal ranges, heaters, dinner-ware, toilet-ware, framed pictures, cut glass, and bric-a-brac.”

The brown and green colors are new. I'm still looking for colors other than blue, brown and green if anyone has any that they would like to part with.

It is interesting to note the different croppings between the cards. Specifically, the brown card is cropped slightly differently than the blue and green ones.

This one has nothing to do with my collection, really, but I had to add it because I think it's one of the very best images in the entire set.
Thanks Doug!

Way cool card of our first President, from 1885. Seems undergraded - looks like a lock for a "6" to me.
