The cards combine humor, bright and elegant graphic design and typography to promote a wide variety of wares and services. The Fulton Street trade cards are among the many collections held by the Brooklyn Collection, Brooklyn Public Library's local history division, and the world's largest public archive for the study of Brooklyn's social and cultural history.
