The young boy on the front of this advertising card is definitely the victor. He wears a large-block suit of white & green with a neck ruff. On his head is a tam o'shanter and in his right hand is a wooden sword; in his left is a crude broom. He stands on the back of a poor woman on her stomach with hands flung wide, glasses on her face, and a fringed kerchef on her head and shoulders. Her feet are in the air with one shoe falling off. Has he scored a victory over the village witch? Probably so; in his imagination. Below this image is printed - 6. La Victoire. The back has been stamped with an ad for a dry foods store in black ink. The text: G. B. Goodrich & Co. Dry Goods & Carpets, Also a full line of Jersey Jackets, Hoisery, Kid gloves, Corsets, Ribbons, Handkerchiefs, Laces, Jersey gloves, etc. 28 Font Street Owego, N.Y. The list of store goods screams late 1800s - early 1900s. This card is in cery good condition. All corners are sharp. Color is strong. There are a few brown specks. There is no sign of ever having been in an album. 4 3/8 x 2 7/8 inches. There is an image of a white jar(?) on the front with something written in script. I could not descern what this says.
