An Antique Marysville, Ohio Restaurant Trade Card

April 15th, 2008 · 1 Comment

A Restaurant Advertising Trade Card from Marysville, Ohio, Offering Ice Cream and Oysters

We’ve always been fond of this charming c. 1880s trade card advertising George P. Robinson’s City Restaurant and Lunch Room in Marysville, Ohio. Mr. Robinson’s restaurant was opposite the post office and offered “oysters and ice cream in season.” What street was the restaurant on and is the building still there? This Union County advertisement measures approximately 4” x 3.” It’s in excellent condition, and would look great framed!

Ice cream and oysters sound like a strange combination, but this little girl looks like she’s having fun at the restaurant. See more 19th century trade cards and advertising postcards at our website.
