Ancestor Advertisements

I love old advertisements and have been known to browse publications just to look at the ads. While the examples below are rather plain, they are the ads of my husband's 2nd great-grandfather so that makes them special (at least to me). He died in 1907 due to a trolley accident, but clearly he had no intention of slowing down or retiring since he placed these ads when he was 66 years old.
