Dozier Weyl Crackers Tradecard, St. Louis, MO. Circa 1890

This is an early advertising tradecard from the Dozier Weyl Biscuit Cracker Co., which was based in downtown Saint Louis, Missouri. The image features their large factory building and their parrot image, which was featured in the vast majority of their giveaway advertising products. The parrot is talking about their Boss Crackers. The Dozier Weyl Company eventually merged and formed the Nabisco Company, in the early 1900’s.
