Again, I apologize for the poor photography. The Society of California Pioneers, which I visited last week, has a ton of great advertisements from the 19th century. These two are sewing ads. I am not sure what company the first is for, but the second is no doubt for Grover & Baker, a San Francisco Company. It's a little dense for an advertisement, no?

If you have any info about these ads, do share please.
