Fairy Tales are always a nice way to get away from the stress of modern life (and the current economic crisis). Anything is possible in them.
The Victorian trade card to the right pictures the fairy tale cat, Puss ‘n Boots. He’s a confident one. Puss ‘n Boots showed his master he could overcome his obstacles by believing in himself. Maybe that’s why Handy Box Shoe Blacking chose this image to advertise their product. Anotherwards, a person can accomplish anything by using Handy Box Shoe Blacking.
The Puss ‘n Boots fairy tale was by Frenchman Charles Perrault. You can read it by going to Childrenstory.com. Also, more wonderful Victorian trade cards with great graphics and color can be found in my store, Remember When Vintage Postcards.
