1.25” by Bastian. Front shows “Lena Park/Owners/W.Williams/P. Hicks with their address of “85 Dearborn St. Chicago.” Backpaper text reads “Free Excursions/Every Day to Lena Park, Ind, the New Manufacturing City. For Railroad Tickets Apply to Square Realty Co. (not Inc.) 85 Dearborn St. Suite 604-604-606 Chicago.” This land tract in northwest Indiana was heavily promoted to the city’s immigrants and thousands of tiny lots were sold. There was a glass factory but the promised industrial development never happened. Cello has slightly raised line across center but no stain and displays glossy Mint with Exc. color. We’ve seen only three. Rare.
