Offered an antique, original, and rare 1902 Coca-Cola trade card or menu card, with the delightful image of Miss Hilda Clark. Hilda Clark (18721932) was an American model and actress. She was born in Kansas, but moved east, to Boston, to become a popular music hall singer and actress. She became famous as a model, in 1895, when she became the first woman to be featured on a tin Coca-Cola tray. This card is a perfect example of Coca-Cola's use of both a beautiful woman and a celebrity in advertising.
The front reads "COPYRIGHTED 1902 BY COCA-COLA COMPANY", and more, which you can see in the pictures. On the back of the card is a soda menu. The card is in an excellent state of preservation, but is not perfect. If you will please look at the last two pictures, you will see a break in the card on the menu side.
On the opposite side, the problem presents itself only slightly. There is also bit of soiling on the backside.Otherwise, it is very clean and bright. It is full size, it has not been cropped or trimmed. It was never in a scrap book, which has ruined many of these.
