Liberty, MO: Wm. D. Wymore, 1869. Printed broadside, 7 3/4 x 11 3/4, employing several sizes and styles of type, including bold capitals for the head. Wymore (1835-1894) apparently took over the "Thompson House" Stables from a relative, George W. Wymore, who had established the business in the late 1840s. This copy appears to be a proof, with an editing mark in ink, changing the March date to "15" from a single digit. Not recorded on OCLC. Snag in the center affecting one word, soiled; still a good example of a rare illustrated trade broadside. (#5047). Item #58095
