The Victorian trade card is advertising Andes Stoves and Ranges by Phillips and Clark Stove Co. from Geneva, New York which was established in 1868.
I found quite a lot of information about how the Stove Co. created a lot of jobs in the area. This is a bit of what I found from a business paper from 1893!
"The Phillips and Clark Stove Company. In 1885 the firm of G. H. Phillips & Co. moved from Troy to Geneva, and soon thereafter a proposition was made to organize a company for the manufacture of stoves on an extensive scale. Local capitalists hesitated about entering into the enterprise, but after a short time a stock company with $100,000 capital was incorporated. The Phillips interests expressed a willingness to take a $75,000 of the stock, a fact considered quite surprising at the time, but Mr. Phillips was experienced in business and saw grand possibilities to be attained with works at Geneva. The necessary buildings were at once erected and the company began business; and it is a fact that this is by far the largest and best paying industry now operating in Geneva. The works employ about 250 men, while the output of stoves is about 100 per day. The officers of the company are: George H. Phillips, president and manager; F. 0. Mason, vice.president; E. B. Webster, secretary; W. A. Clark, treasurer; L. S. Phillips, superintendent."
Remember, this was written in 1893!! I found that fascinating that you could find such great provenance through the web for the company of this trade card! This information is over 75 years old so didn't need permission to copy it. But that's your history lesson for the day!
