New England broadside from 1876...
Item # 566246
November 1, 1876
An interesting broadside advertising: "NEW ENGLAND AT HOME. Ye Supper Of Ye OLDEN TYME." noting that: "A New England Supper will ben gvven by ye Damyseies and ye maydens of ye Young Ladyes' Social, for ye benefit of Grace Church Great Bend, on Wednesday eve, in ye month of November Day the 1st, MDCCCLXXVI in LENHEIM'S HALL." The text also includes a little poem (see photos).
My guess is this may be from Clinton, Massachusetts, but you might have a more knowledgeable thought. Measures 20 by 13 inches, various ink smudging, blank on the reverse, very nice condition.
