Broadsides, sheets of paper printed on one side only, were popular methods of advertising in the 18th and 19th centuries. They were posted on tree trunks, in taverns, and in other public places to reach as wide an audience as possible. This broadside extols the virtues of Mr. Hubbard's 150-acre farm in Sunderland, Massachusetts, complete with house, two barns, and other outbuildings including a sugar house with the apparatus for making sugar (maple sugar). It is dated December 13. 1819.
