    Description

    Outstanding Large 1847-Dated Wheeler's Business Advertising Broadside, Featuring Early Steam Locomotive. It pictures a train loaded with goods, carrying the sign, "From New York and bound to...Wheeler's." This poster announces the opening of a new larger store in Norwich (New York?), to be stocked by the arriving railroad. The poster proclaims: "It is my (Wheeler's) intention the coming year, by the beauty of my goods, and by the uniform cheapness of the prices, to make this establishment one of the most popular stores this side of the Hudson." Printed by "Foldger and Sutton, Printers, (Yankee Press and Locomotive), 123 Fulton Street, ...New York." Unusual and attractive bright blue stock. Excellent condition with a little very minor water staining. 24" x 28".
