   The two center cards above shows what a salesman card looks like. The salesman would send these cards to his customers telling them when he would be visiting them. In this way his customers could get their orders ready. I have a half dozen of these cards from Kruse Hardware Co. They are on different cards of Cincinnati but the backs are all the same so I am only showing one of them.

  The equally rare card above is for the I. M. Freiberg stores located at 4th & Main and 3498 Reading Rd. The way the card was held closed during mailing was by lifting up the two fingers seen in the 2nd image and sliding the top part under them thus you would see the two fingers resting in the palm of the first image. I did not want to actually do this in fear of damaging the card. After opening the card up you can see the outline of the two fingers in the 4th image. When opened all the way the card is too large to scan so it is scanned in two parts.

   The Valley Cigar Store was owned by Ike Hyams who was known as the "King of the Bookies" in Cincinnati during the 1940s and 50s. He also owned the Maple Club and the Linden Bar. This cigar store was known to have had a backroom where bets were taken and, as the poker chip above shows, bookmaking was not the only thing going on in that backroom. The bookmakers were run out of town in the mid 60's.

United Cigar Stores.jpg (138010 bytes)

   This is not a advertising card but I decided to put it here because it shows a United Cigar Store. There were several United stores in the Cincinnati area. NWC of 5th & Walnut, SWC of 5th & Vine, and at 615 1/2 Vine St. (Sinton Hotel). The photographer had trouble centering this image showing a man stopping the McMicken Main St. streetcar. It also shows a policeman giving, what looks to be, directions and another man apparently staring at the photographer.

   The 2nd Uricho card has been trimmed. The above ad from 1903 is for a Carew barber shop. I do not believe it is connected with Uricho's shop. The words are slightly blurry but I believe you can make them out. A third barber shop, seen in the card below,  was located in the arcade. The card was mailed in 1918.
