Montreal, Victoria Bridge, Grand Trunk Railway Advertising Note, CU

# 1728

A wonderful advertising note engraved by J. Sage & Sons, Buffalo, New York. Apparently a travel promotion item of the Grand Trunk Railway that operated in Canada and New England. An engraving of the Victoria Bridge is prominently displayed as the central vignette. The bridge was named for Queen Victoria, whose image comprises the right vignette. The bridge was completed in December 1859 and was the longest bridge in the world at the time. The back includes a "Description of Bridge", a list of "First Class Hotels" and "Places of Interest".

New, although there is a tiny margin cut at the left margin. Nonetheless, an attractive and historical item in a remarkable state of preservation. Great originality with exceptional color, not a single fold or bend, and above average margins.
