Description:

The front panel has a blue eyed boy dressed in his finest pointing with his left hand. There is a sweet in his right hand. In front of him is a box of Hires and a glass on a light blue area which has the text: "From ocean to ocean, and over the ocean, in every land of civilized taste, folks like it." The board is folded in half. The back panel has the text: Hires checker board. Hires Rootbeer. Suppose Niagara's endless stream- It might be so arranged - By magic queer, to Hires Rootbeer Could suddenly be changed, Think what a mecca it would be For pilgrims, day and night, To stand and drunk upon the brink Its nectarous delight. The company name and address are below and the printer's name is to the right. The same little boy is pointing with his left hand. The light blue area has the text: It Pops. Effervescent too, exhilarating, appetizing, Hires Rootbeer. On the inside the checker board is black and yellow. There are four different advertisements, one on each side: The best route; It pops -- Effervescent too.; A mile a minute; and Drink as much as you please.
