I am trying to find out where the broadside I have is from. It is dated April 30, 1868, “in aid of soldiers orphans”; and is the 2nd grand award of premiums by the Washington Library Co, in aid of the Riverside Institute, home for soldiers and sailors orphans. It list a banker, George A. Cooke & Co. of 33 South Third St., Philadelphia, Pa. I erroneously thought it would be easy to find out where the Riverside Institute was, only to find out many places have things named Riverside, plus your Riverside wasn’t incorporated until 1871. Although l know your Riverside came into being officially in 1871, do you know if you had a Washington Library Co., or Riverside Institute? Any info you might share would be appreciated. Regards, Joanne Conti
