Further Trade Cards of Old London

June 20, 2012
by the gentle author

After publishing selections of trade cards that might have been found in the eighteenth century by rummaging in a hypothetical drawer, searching down the back of a hypothetical sofa, looking under a hypothetical bed, discovered beneath the hypothetical floorboards, or happened upon in the pockets of a hypothetical coat, it is my pleasure to show this further selection that fell out of a hypothetical book.

    Dear Gentle author,

    Is it known roughly when the cards were published?

    Mr Henry Patten appears to be vending an impressive range of 18th century laptop computers.

    I like the unpretentiousness of Mr. Higginbotham’s fish.

    And the sound of “Great Choice of curious White Silk Worm Gut, just come over.”

    Dear site – would you have anything on ‘Gunnell’s Hat Warehouse’ of Chandois Str. Covent Garden run/owned by Anne Rozea in the 1750’s – hats and cloaks, caps and silks of all kinds?
