Selling The Mill City: A Postcard Book

$ 9.95

During Minneapolis's fifty-year reign as the nation's Mill City, flour companies flooded mailboxes with advertising cards, their gimmicks ranging from renaissance images to patriotic names to humorous anecdotes. This collection of historic advertising art offers a fascinating look into another era.

This book of thirty postcards contains top-quality color reproductions of classic advertising art from the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth century when Minneapolis reigned as the flour milling capital of the world. Printed on heavy card stock and perforated for easy removal, these stunning postcards are a delight to the sender and receiver.
