Vote early! Vote often! for the Choice Family Coal sold by Edward E. Bowns... [advertising card with spaces for tracking election returns]

Brooklyn: Edward E. Bowns, 1876. 5.5x3 inch card with slogan between two columns for recording the electoral votes of various states; the verso has a summary of the presidential votes from 1789 to 1872. Minor chipping at corners, not reaching the text.

"Vote early! Vote often!" was a tongue-in-cheek reference to Tamany Hall-style electoral corruption, here deployed in reference to choosing a brand of coal. "If you buy there once you will buy again."

Cat.No: 185462
