This American trade card features a rather racist view of "Chinamen" and of course depicts the association of Chinese people and Laundries. The Victorian period was one of very racist views from whites... in Great Britain & America in particular....against coloured peoples of all denominations in general and this card reflects those views very clearly. Postcard size at 4 1/2" x 3 1/4'. Condition very good.
