Spurlock’s Bluing

Is that a cat or a dog?  And that’s one hell of a pompadour on the kid.

Anyway, this is a 4″ x 7″ mezzotint trade card for a company I can’t positively locate; however, the printing company, Brandon Print Co. of Nashville, can be fairly well dated, since they did a lot of state government work.  The earliest citing I’ve found for Brandon Print Co. is 1887 and the latest is 1913.  The extant Brandon Print Company building, 228 2nd Avenue in Nashville was built in 1892.
