Historical Note

Ephemera is a collective term for different kinds of printed paper items that were originally meant to be discarded after use. Examples include advertisements, calendars, menus, paper bags, and posters. While these items were produced for a specific purpose and were not intended to be collected or preserved, people frequently save items that hold special meaning for them. They also save items that they perceive to be of historical significance. Collections of ephemera are a valuable historical resource that can provide unique insights into the period in which the materials were created. The items in the ephemera collection in the Hartford History Center have been donated by many different individuals over the years and the collection continues to grow through donations and purchase.

Scope and Content

This collection contains different forms of printed paper items produced by Hartford businesses beginning in the 1840s and continuing through the present. Many types of ephemera, such as trade cards and catalogs, functioned solely as advertising. Others, such as bookmarks, calendars, and blank books, might serve a useful purpose as well as providing advertising for a firm. Much of the ephemera, especially the earliest items, were printed locally by Hartford’s many printing firms. Later items were often, though not always, printed elsewhere.
