The front of the trade card begins at the top with the title "Orpheus" and continues with a drawn color illustration of a boy and nymph serving a god and goddess Anheuser- Bush Ton Faust Beer. All individuals in the drawn color illustration are topless but have various color sheets covering their bottom half. At the bottom it states "Evohe! Anheuser Busch's Beer inspires me. I feel in my heart its sweet delirium. Evohe! Tony Faust Beer is King." On the back of the trade card, there is a black and white drawing of the company and shoreline on the right. On top of the drawing there are two phrases. The first states "Brewing capacity 100,000 barrels" and the second phrase states "Annual sales 750,000 barrels." Below the drawing "St.Louis, Mo." is listed along with the phrase "30,000,000 bottles." To the left of the illustration there is a large eagle trademark of Anheuser- Busch Brewing Assn.View this piece: jpg pdf
