Forbringer & Co -Commemorative Abraham Lincoln Lithograph Advertising the Sangamo Insurance Co of Springfield Illinois AP1540
A very soft sell. Integrity by association. We are reverently shown Lincoln's Home, and Tomb, and scenes from his life, and then discreetly alerted to Sangamo's financial stability: namely their working capital of $200,00.
Illustrates very clearly how Lincoln's honesty immediately became a touchstone of character and how instantly the use of his name and image seemed to guarantee probity in any business.
