Title: J. W. Jenkins' Sons Music Co.

Description: Folded advertising card for J. W. Jenkins' Sons Music Co. that unfolds to show an illustrated version of "Jack and Jill." When folded, the card looks like a crocodile leather wallet which says: "As there is interest for the reader of the jingles of childhood within, there is also profit for those who take advantage of our suggestions there." As you open the card, it says: "Our store is a great exposition of all that's newest and best in pianos, musical instruments and musical merchandise..."" When fully open, the inside of the card has the Jack and Jill rhyme accompanied by images of a girl and boy walking up a hill, then falling down the hill, then being patched up by a woman. At the bottom it says: "Copyrighted 1898 by Niagara Lith. Co., Buffalo, N.Y." Address is given on outside of card:
