Ownership and History This is a "stock card" (a generic trade card to which the advertiser added his specific information).

Charles M. Pine (born ca. 1812) established his grocery store in 1848. A census listing indicates he had retired by 1870, when he was 58 years old. His son Charles Theodore Pine followed him into the business, which was located on Richmond Terrace in West New Brighton, Staten Island.
