1860s Ticket Stubs Baker Family Concerts
The Baker Family consisted of Six people, Four brothers and two sisters by marriage. They traveled to small towns across the early United States entertaining those populations that very rarely got to see any performing groups. By the looks of the tickets, they were used many times, they were collected at one concert and used again at the next.
The largest tickets are the red and pink ones that measure 3 1/2" x 2 1/2" and are a heavy cardboard about the weight of poster board today. The orange ticket is just a little smaller than the red and pink and the green ticket measures 1 1/2" x 2 1/2". Three have been pasted in an album and have paper residue on the reverse. The pink one is intact and has not been pasted.
These ticket stubs have existed for well over 100 years and are an unusual bit of American history!
