16 Advertising Piece for a Lecture at a Methodist Church in Syracuse, NY
Syracuse Furman Street Methodist Church 1896 Advertising Card Very Good No Jacket 
Business card sized advertising piece--utilitarian, not decorative (although there is creative use of type fonts here). "The New School and Musical Entertainments. Furman Street M.E. Church. Monday Eve., June 15, 1896. Admission, 10 cents." "The New School" may have to do with the theological "old school methods" vs. "new school methods". The new school method of using an altar call, devised by upstate NY revivalist Charles Finney, has become practically an orthodox practice amongst most evangelicals today. It wasn't always considered so. This piece indicates that the next logical step was using musical entertainment (and perhaps small admission fees) in order to spruce up the church service. That this has also become the ultimate in evangelicalism is evident by the worship at most mega-churches today. As far as I know, they still aren't charging admission, however. Not yet anyway. A few faint creases. Size: 48mo - over 3" - 4" Tall
