James H. Whitney & Co. "San Francisco Minstrels"

Well-designed two-colored letterhead with beautifully hand-lettered fonts. "A Model Company of Modern Minstrels Presenting A Performance Replete With The Best of Everything That Has Made Minstrelsy Popular." Printed by "Cross Ptg. Co., Chi." This letterhead is from a scrapbook kept by the Baum family-- two brothers and two sons-- who were all coronet players that appeared in everything from minstrel shows, to comedy troupes, to dime museums, to small orchestras and vaudeville. All of their scrapbook will be appearing soon in the Member section.
