|The picture below shows a larger front and back view of this Colorful Old Horsfords Acid Phosphate Drink Victorian Advertising Trade Card. The card is not dated but it is believed to be from the 1800s. The front has a detailed image of a young girl. The front advertising reads as follows:|
HORSFORDS ACID PHOSPHATE

The back has more advertising. The retail price was 50 cents per bottle. The bottom has a blank space that was meant to be stamped by the name and address of a drug store or grocer. The trade card measures about 3-1/8'' x 4-15/16''. The front appears to be in excellent condition and the back has some paper loss as pictured.
