Advertising Trade Sample Card Bee Keeping
A colored illustration, featuring in the center a young girl standing by a modern bee hive and holding a smoker in her left hand. Her right hand is resting on a gold circle with three bees, perhaps depicting the queen bee, worker bee, and drone. At her feet are boxes of comb honey. In the background is an enlarged honeycomb pattern, and on the left and right of the card bees are shown on clover and thistle flowers. Below the girl, three children and a dog flee from bees coming out of a bee skep. A small supernatural being wearing a cap is poking the entrance to the skep with a stick. There is a metal honey extractor on the lower right. Written at top of image: "Compliments of J.H. Martin Hartford, NY."
