The images today are Victorian Trade cards. These five cards are from the Niagara Starch company. Usually these cards were given away to customers by the grocer or sent for in the mail. These cards are from the 1880's. The brand Niagara Starch still exists today.
As always feel free to use any image for your personal use and artwork only. Do not post or sell the original images anywhere else on the net, but feel free to link anyone here. I ask that if you use one in your artwork that you link it back to this message so we can all enjoy it.
