This is an early 20th century advertising card from a book and stationery store in downtown St. Louis, Missouri. Cranston and Stowe was located at 1101 Olive Street in St. Louis MO. The front of the card has a black and white image of the Agrippa Pantheon in Rome consistent with late 1800's to early 1900's with women in long dresses and not a car or motorized vehicle anywhere in sight. The reverse has advertising for the store and indicates that Illustrated and Holiday Gift books are a specialty. Condition is good. This is smaller than a standard postcard. It measures 3 1/4 x 4 5/8 inches.
