Washington, 1860


Found this little beauty, at first I thought it was just a little flower bookmark. When I picked it up, I noticed that it unfolds:




There are color illustrations on both sides, each a prominent landmark in Washington D.C. - U.S. Treasury, the "President's House," the Washington Monument, the Capitol and that old favorite the "Lunatic Asylum."

There's a small bit of text reading "Entered According to Act of Congress in the Year 1860 by G. Henro..." or something very close.

Found in "Puppy Playmates" published by Samuel Gabriel & Sons, no date listed.
