The front panel is die-cut with a girl holding an umbrella and nosegay as she looks over the fence at a boy who is reaching for the nosegay. The back panel shows their backs with a dog sleeping next to the fence. In 1890, the company was organized under the guidance of Adolphus W. Green, a Chicago laywer. Midwest bakers who joined the company included Aldrich Bakery and Bremner Baker in Chicago, Dozier Baking Co. in St. Louis, Carpenter and Under-Wood in Milwaukee, Langeles Bakers of New Orleans, Loose Brothers of Kansas City, and the Sommer-Richardson Bakery of St. Joseph, Missouri. In 1898 this company and other U.S. conglomerates became the National Biscuit Co.
