Beautiful reproduction print of a 1903 scene of two young college girls. The two are dressed in Princeton's colors or Orange and Black and they are playing basketball. Above them to the left is a Princeton pennant. The colors of the image are vibrant. Measures 9 3/4 inches x 6 1/2 inches.
The original image this is taken from is from 1903 and was issued as a "premium" card. A common practice at the time was to give out various "cards" or little gifts to entice people to buy your product. Tobacco companies were famous for giving out miniature rugs or little "silks". Joseph Tetlow was a Philadelphia based manufacturer of perfumes and toilet powders. Their most famous products were the Gossamer and Swan Down powders. These cards were given out as premiums with a Gossmer purchase.
