    Description

    OUTSTANDING NEWSBOY TOBACCO ADVERTISING SIGN. Excellent color and wonderful graphic appeal, this advertising sign for Newsboy Tobacco is 16 1/2" by 23 1/4" and has possibly been trimmed slightly. Framed in the original National Tobacco Works frame with the company name embossed in the gesso along with the location of the factory in Louisville, KY. The graphic shows a group of street boys (or newsboys) scrapping for a plug of tobacco with the store owner and store front in the background. Bold colors and very nice, excellent condition make this piece a real eye catcher, great center piece or focal point. The frame, with it's original luster helps to make this a rare and desirable sign with lots of appeal sure to be the center of attention.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
