Hello, Everyone :hiya:

This 1896-1899 early F. W. RUECKHEIM & BRO. LARGE POSTER was displayed in the hall of executives of the Cracker Jack Company Plant in Chicago. I enjoyed the great graphics in this poster! :D

I didn't notice it right away, but underneath the sister it says "I'd like some too." :cry:

What's the prize he is holding in his right hand? It would seem to be a prize that pre-dates prizes actually being put in boxes, therefore a point-of-sale item?

Hello, gsullivan :hiya:

That is a piece of Cracker Jack the boy is taunting his sister with in the scene! :D That piece of C. J. is a little on the burnt side though! :insane:
