19th century US cartoon contrasting a rich Jewish shop owner and a peddler

Object | Accession Number: 2016.184.458

Cartoon of a stereotypical heayset, flashily dressed Jewish shopowner suspiciously watching an unkempt Jewish peddler dressed in rags walking down the street. The captions, set as poems, make fun of both, and point out how the rich Wholesaler does not recognize his old friend the Peddler. It was drawn by F.W. Opper for Puck, America's first humor magazine, published in New York in both English and German language versions. This print is one of more than 900 items in the Katz Ehrenthal Collection of antisemitic visual materials.
