Baltimore photographer, publisher and entrepreneur Richard Walzl gave away this card when he moved his studio from  46 N. Charles Street to 405 W. Baltimore Street ca. 1881-1882. To get the word out, Walzl chose  a stock card featuring a colorful bird singing in a rose bush. This card is one of only two Baltimore photographers’ trade cards I have found.
