TitleO'Brien's Art Emporium
DescriptionText in illustration reads: "O'Brien's Art Emporium, 51 State St., Chicago. Artist's materials and decalcomanie designs. Engravings, Chromos and Picture Frames." From text: "O'Brien's Art Emporium.--There is no city in the United States which, to-day, in proportion to its age and population, can boast of so large a number, such hard-working, and such talented artists as the city of Chicago. It is also true, that in no city are there greater facilities, both as to quality and price, for the purchase of the numerous varieties of art which contribute to the pleasure and contentment of society. We have been convinced of this by an extended visit to O'Brien's art emporium, at No. 51 State street, where we have always been received cordially, and permitted to revel at will among the exhaustless resources that it affords."
