    No Binding. Condition: Collectible-Near Fine (Near Fi. Original black-and-white photo postcard. No date, circa 1930s. 5 1/2" x 3 1/2." Title printed at the bottom on the image.

This postcard shows a brewery in Virginia City from the "bonanza days." This Virginia City may either be the one in Nevada, or the one in Montana. Nevada's Virginia City was founded as a boomtown upon the discovery of the Comstock Lode in 1859. For years, Virginia City was a happening place and a central hub for the local mining industry. The population of the town varied depending on the outputs of the mines. By about 1880, the mining outputs decreased significantly, and a substantial decrease in population followed. Much of Virginia City's economy became based on tourism in the twentieth century. Montana's Virginia City also began as a boomtown upon the discovery of gold in 1863. This prompted a local gold rush and the town became the new capital of Montana Territory in 1865. However, the prosperity of Virginia City was relatively short-lived. In 1875, the territorial capital was moved to Helena where more gold had been found. Virginia City became somewhat a ghost town, but during the 1940s, efforts were made to preserve the town for historical purposes and to draw tourists. Today, the population numbers 216 with a slight upswing during the summer. Burton Frasher (1888-1954) was an American photographer and publisher of postcards. Frasher toured around much of the American West and even into Mexico to take photographs and sell them as postcards. Frasher's postcards were very popular during the 1930s and 1940s and were widely circulated.

  • No Binding. Condition: Collectible-Very Good. Original trade card with a color illustration of a bucolic sunset scene. An individual rides in a horse-drawn cart on a road in the foreground. No date, circa 1880s-1910s. 4 1/2" x 3." Trade card is very clean and intact except for age toning, slight surface cracking on front, and a few surface tears limited to the back. A Very Good copy. Trade card for Louis Golder, a grocer and dealer in wines and liquor in San Francisco, California. Trade cards were antique business cards that first became popular during the late seventeenth century in Paris and Lyon, France and London, England. Trade cards were often given by business owners and proprietors to patrons and customers as a way to promote their businesses. Prior to the use of street addresses, trade cards had maps so clients could locate the associated business. Many of these cards also incorporated elaborate designs, illustrations, and other decorative features. Trade cards became popular in the United States during the nineteenth century in the period after the Civil War. The late nineteenth century also saw the advent of trade card collecting as a hobby. While they are no longer in use, trade cards influenced the formation of trading cards and were the predecessors of modern-day business cards.

  • No Binding. Condition: Collectible-Good. Original trade card with a color illustration of a man punching a bartender in the face with the caption, "A Claret Punch. The result of not using The Great American Tea Co.'s Celebrated Teas and Coffees." Includes a gilt background. No date, circa 1880s-1910s. 3" x 4 1/4." Trade card is clean and intact overall on front but there is slight darkening on front and back and several surface chips on back that have led to some loss of text. A Good copy. Trade card for the Great American Tea Company. The text on back offers customers a promotional gift, a special "toilet set," when they buy at least $30 in their teas and coffees. The Great American Tea Company also went by another name, the Great Atlantic Tea Company (A&P), which was founded in 1859 by George Gilman as a tea and coffee store. It was then known as Gilman & Company and had been built upon his father's leather tanning business. Over the years, A&P expanded its product line and eventually became one of the most prominent grocery retailers in United States. A&P was the largest grocery retailer in the U.S. from 1915-1975 and was also the largest of any retailer until 1965. However, new competition, such as Wal-Mart, and the Great Recession led to financial difficulties for A&P. After over a century successful business, A&P finally shuttered its doors in 2015.

Falk actually began his business from a previous brewing company, Goes & Falk, that he had co-founded with Frederick Goes in 1855 or 1856.

    No Binding. Condition: Collectible-Very Good. Original billhead on blue paper with printed text in black ink. Billhead has a decorative letterhead that reads, "A. Finke's Widow, Manufacturers of High Grade Sparkling Wines, Growers and Dealers in California Wines and Brandies; Established 1864." No date, circa 1910. Billhead has a blank fill-in date for the 1900s ("19__"). San Francisco, California. 7" x 8 1/4." Billhead is very clean and intact. Center vertical fold line and very slight wrinkling and few small, faint stains at the top. Also printed on the billhead are the names of the proprietors, E. O. Schraubstadter and E. A. Groezinger, cable address "Finke," telephone number "Kearny 709," and address of the "office and vaults" at 809 Montgomery St. "Schmidt Litho. Co. S.F." printed in upper-right corner. Alois Finke was an Austrian-American winemaker who specialized in artificially carbonated white wines. The brand name, "A. Finke's Widow," came into use after Gottlieb (or Gottlob) Groezinger, a German-American businessman and food and wine connoisseur, took over the business after Finke's passing in 1874. The name is a nod to the famous Veuve Clicquot ("widow Clicquot" in French) champagne. Notably, A. Finke's Widow was indicted for mislabeling by the federal government after a 1906 federal rule deemed that any artificially carbonated beverages cannot be called "sparkling" (as seen here on the billhead). In a similar case, A. Finke's Widow was also indicted for using the term, "champagne," which is reserved only for wines that originate from Champagne, France. By 1915, A. Finke's Widow was among the most popular "sparkling" wines in the western United States and Canada. Prohibition brought about the end of the company, but its brand name reappeared years later after Prohibition's repeal and exists to this day as "Finke's Widow.".

    No Binding. Condition: Collectible-Very Good. Original billhead on beige paper with printed text and handwriting in black ink. Datelined July 26, 1918 in Oakland, California. 8 1/2" x 11." Two pages, complete. Billhead is very clean and intact overall. Paper has a few vertical and horizontal fold lines. Slight soiling on the back. This is a letter handwritten in pencil on the company stationery of Landregan & White, Incorporated. The printed header reads, "Landregan & White, Incorporated, Distributors of Imported & California Wines, Brandies and Kentucky Whiskies." Also printed at the top are the locations of the office and salesrooms at "Cor. 61st and Adelines Sts." and the telephone number ("Piedmont 132"). The letter is handwritten in pencil and presumably authored and signed by one of the proprietors, James Landregan, with the initials, "J. S.[?] L." and "Your Dad." In this letter, Landregan writes to his son Jimmy (or daughter Junny) about everyday business and recent events. Landregan suggests he is replying to his (or her) recent letters and says the reason his reply is late is because two acquaintances, Messrs. Mason and Such, had a hard time finding a job. He says he "will call on Mr. Donnelly and yourself before Aug. 15." Landregan also relays a message from Such that a family[?] is in a certain part of the country. Landregan writes further, "Well Jimmy [or Junny] things down here about the same. Everybody at home are fine. Will write you again soon. . Your Dad. P.S. Best regards to P[.] Donnelly and tell him I hope the good work will continue. J. S.[?] L." This James Landregan may or may not be of any relation to James A. Landregan, Jr. at Goodyears Bar, Sierra County, California. Within a collection of letters by James A. Landregan, Jr. and his wife Helen, he mentions a Mr. Donnelly. This collection also lists several locations and among them is Oakland. James Landregan (of Landregan & White) may have also had a son named James (hence the addressee's name in the letter if the name is Jimmy). Signed by Author(s).
