Trade Card for C. M. Henderson & Company Boots and Shoes, circa 1900

Summary

Trade cards were advertisements found in product packages or distributed by local merchants. This trade card offers a glimpse of a rural schoolyard and the students' recess activities. Girls talk, while one holds a hoop toy. Boys play leapfrog and perhaps jacks on the grass. Note that the children are not closely supervised.
