Puzzles From The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art Glasier Photographic Collection
According to the Brockton Massachusetts 1908 City Directory, photographer Frederick Whitman Glasier had a studio in Brockton. It was at his studio that he worked, exhibited his photographs, and sold copies of his prints. His photographs reflect this interest in the West and Native Americans. As a young man, he had traveled out West and was greatly influenced by "Buffalo Bill" Cody. Some Brockton residents would later "recall that he dressed in cowboy regalia, shoes, hat, leather jacket, with a goatee to match.” You may view more Glasier images at: https://emuseum.ringling.org/emuseum/search/glasier
Puzzles from the Tibbals Circus Collection of Tradecards
Trade cards are examples of material culture that offer information on business practices of the late 18th and early 19th century. There is no definitive definition of a trade card but generally it is a printed notice of goods for sale or services available for the public.
