Farmers--here we find a beautiful artwork card (unsigned)_ for FERTILIZER!! I bought this about 4 decades ago with a box lot of trade cards mostly c. 1888-ish and I am sure that holds true for this card as well.
The show-off on the left in his elegant corn field boasts about his crop for which he used a little "Homestead Bone Black Fertilizer" while the dude on the right scratches his head in disbelief. He has thrown down his straw hat in is pitiful field of listless corn! Poor guy! And he was the one with the green thumb!
