Description:

The front panel of the one-fold trade card features a color drawing of an obelisk with pyramids in the background, with text that reads Ballard's Obelisk Flour (with the latter two words in a red banner), Always Reliable, and in a logo, Ballard's 196 Best Obelisk Flour Louisville. The back panel features a color illustration of a woman, seated, holding a large pan of baked bread, next to an iron stove in a kitchen. A bag of Ballard's Best Obelisk Flour sits on a nearby table. The back panels are primarily text, both promotional messages as well as suggestions for making bread, plus a black and white drawing of an obelisk, a pyramid, the Egyptian Sphinx, and a palm tree.
