Circa 1917 Kromo Gravure Trading Cards

With Examples of Advertising on the Otherwise Blank Reverse Side

1917 Kromo Gravure Cards, but with an advertisement on the back for "Best Photoplays and Stars at Opera House."  The ink of the advertisement seeps through to the front of the card on some of these, as evidenced by the left border of the Harold Lloyd card. Typically blank backed, interesting to see the Kromo Gravure cards in action.
