A late nineteenth-century business card for Henry Swartz’s dry goods store in York, Pennsylvania. Printed in two colors, the card shows a smorgasbord of typefaces, as it was common in the Victorian era. “Henry Swartz” is set in Antique Extended, a precursor of Hellenic Wide. “Dry Goods” pairs decorated initials from Ornamented No. 13and a hairline Tuscan with swelling at the mid-height spurs that is known as Ornamented No. 35.
