1884-85 World's Industrial and Cotton Centennial Exposition Trade Card with a multicolor picture of the "J&P Coats' Exhibit at the Cotton Centennial Exposition", "New Orleans 1885". The base of the exhibit has "The Old Stone Mill At Newport." written on the base and "80,264 Spools" on the floor of the exhibit (I assume that the exhibit was built with those spools). The back of the card has "The Skeleton in Armour" poem by "H. W. Longfellow.' and the location of the exhibit at the fair. Size: 4 1/8" wide by 5 1/4" high. Condition: Very Fine. There are creases in the upper right and lower left corner and a little age toning of the paper.
