Molineux Rifles Trading Card

Brooklyn, N.Y. Militia
Contributed by: US332 Wayne Straight   |   22 Aug 2017

Illust'd Sweet Caporal cigarette trade cards, 1886 US military uniforms. Published by the Kinney Tobacco Company, NY. Sweet Caporal was a brand of cigarettes popular in the US around the turn of the century, one of whose distinguishing features was the inclusion in each pack of collectible "cigarette cards." Kinney claimed this to be the most complete and correct set, urging regiments to send colored sketches of their uniforms so they might be added to the collection as quickly as possible.

The "Molineux Rifles" may refer to General Edward L. Molineux, Molineux Rifles, Company D, Thirty-second Regiment, New York.


 

Mollineaux's Grocery Store Postcard

NE corner of Millineaux Place and Nassau Road in Roosevelt, Long Island, NY
Contributed by: US297 Christina Mollineaux Witcher   |   20 Aug 2017

Postcard of Mollineaux's Grocery Store in Roosevelt, NY. Great picture contributed by US297 Christina Witcher. US294 George Mollineaux recalls family lore talks about this store but this is the first picture I have seen. The store was located on the NE corner of Mollineaux Place and Nassau Road in Roosevelt, Long Island, NY. I submitted Mx Place to the World wide Street Name project and I think you even helped with a current photo of the street.. The owner was Royal Horseman Mollineaux (1858-1931), Royal was a brother of my great grandfather Allen R Mollineaux. I think I may have more info on the store in my files but what I can recall is that it was located at the edge of the farm county when it was founded which is now totally developed.
