(Early 20th Century American Culture, Snapshot of History, Old Timey Telephone, Stumped Bespectacled Sheriff, Telephone Call)
Issued 1913, New York, by Harpers Weekly
Wonderful original antique offset/photo mechanical color print.
In Good+ to near VG [or better] condition: displays uniform age browning/ toning as typical, light scattered spotting or foxing, light edge wear, faint institutional rubber stamp mark in the blank margin, and could have small edge splits which have been carefully and almost invisibly repaired on verso; overall the image remains clean and very attractive. Any defects may hopefully be clearly seen in the images.
Text on verso as issued-This is an original printed sheet from this scarce 20th century American periodical. Thus, it has printing on the back, which is the only way this image can be acquired other than perhaps as a modern reprint.
Please examine the scan closely as it forms the central part of the description. There is a zoom feature so you can see close up. [note: we grade very conservatively and always seek to disclose any noteworthy flaws ].
Great image entirely worthy of hanging for display. A delightful depiction captured in a manner entirely unique to this era.
The printed area remains visually pleasing, a nice impression of an interesting cultural image.
A delightful 20th century print any collector, dealer, or institution would be happy to possess.
