Beautifully illustrated antique advertisement/ trade card for the Victorian play "Shadows of a Great City," an 1884 American play by Herbert Blache and Aaron Hoffmann. This double-sided advertisement features three illustrations of scenes from the production. Two dramatic images of ocean rescues and a full spread depicting a 'boat house on the Harlem River."
The piece is in fair to good condition for its age. The separating fold line down the center has been previously repaired with a small amount of tape and the paper has split slightly on the top and bottom edges. There are a few black ink stains, most notably on the picture of the girl in the boat. There is also a faint trace of glue residue where the piece was most likely pasted into a scrapbook.
