Excelsior Bon Ton Tintype Tent 
Photographer's trade card for the "Excelsior Bon Ton Tintype Tent" shaped like a label 
Trade card, back 
Private collection of Roberta Etter 
Trade Card made to look like a label. One side features a picture of The Excelsior Bon Ton Tintype Tent and The BUTTON Tintype “Just out and they are Hot Stuff!” The tent is clearly in a fairground and is covered in American flags. The other side has a Rebus……When I can´t stand, get my Tin Type taken, tie this to my buttonhole, steal my pocket-book, wind up my watch, prong my clothes, and SHIP ME HOME. There is a place to write in your address below. This one is a bit worn looking but a rare survivor! "Bon Ton" tintypes were usually the size one quarter of a 5"x7" plate (four images to each plate being produced by a four lens camera.
