This week we added 350 images to our Business Card Collection database.

Included is an unbelievable set of Railroad business cards many with personal notes from a gentleman who retired as the General Freight Traffic Manager for the Bangor and Aroostook Railroad. He retired in the 1960's - this somewhat dates the cards.

In addition to railroad company employees, this set has cards from people relied on the railways and/or provided them with services.
