Description

This colored postcard consists of a clipping pasted to the front of a previously published postcard. Young, beardless, Abraham Lincoln is depicted splitting a log while a dog and a man in a coon skin cap watch. The wall of a log cabin is seen behind Lincoln. The postcard reverse is divided. Text in the upper left corner reads: "Boston's Newest Commercial Hotel, Absolutely Fireproof". The number 22952 N is printed along the top edge near the middle.
