Fulton Street Trade Card Collection

Fulton Street Trade Card Collection

Trade cards were early versions of modern business cards: printed notices of goods and services for sale that often included colorful illustrations. Through the Brooklyn Public Library's Fulton Street Trade Card Collection, students can explore cards from the late 18th and early 19th century to learn about commerce, art, and daily life in historic Brooklyn. Users can sort through cards by address or by type of business; some cards include links to related articles from the Brooklyn Daily Eagle archives, allowing for primary source connections across mediums.
