Best lighting This https://goo.gl/BGQK28 Arnold Galleries trade card has some of the best subject lighting I have seen, as if the clouds have parted to allow the sun to shine just on these happy children!

Sharing plays an important role in our world. The Earl J. Arnold Advertising Card Collection 1885 http://arnoldtradecards.com delights in sharing beauty, history, general knowledge and enthusiasm for life with you! "Best of the Arnold cards. Print and share!" (#bestarnoldcards) is a sampling of some of the fascinating posts that comprise the Arnold Collection.

In addition, you might enjoy looking at the Arnold Galleries https://goo.gl/1RBBKn which are currently being developed to exhibit Victorian trade cards by subject.

As the title of this Collection suggests, images in the Arnold Collection are in the public domain and can be copied, printed and shared freely. Enjoy!

Color coordination is just one of the characteristics of this bright trade card featured on https://goo.gl/1sVjGy page 166 of the Earl J. Arnold Advertising Card Collection. The cologne, alas, was not as rich nor as lasting as the trade card.

Dreaming Maybe someday.... I wonder what these children saw in their future in 1890. To see what adults of the time showed them, visit the Earl J. Arnold Advertising Card Collection at arnoldtradecards.com As Rose K. Goldsen used to say, "What our children see in the world depends on what we show them." What are we showing our children today? View the original card in the Arnold's Lions Collection https://goo.gl/wpMGcQ

All too rare are moments like this among siblings! Learning to get along with others is a lifelong process that starts at home. "What our children see in the world depends on what we show them," Rose K. Goldsen's timeless quote (see arnoldtradecards.com) says it all. The original card is featured in https://goo.gl/HTe8NE the Arnold's Lions Collection.
