Notes
Content : Written on border: "Apr. 1873" Printed on border: "The reason for placing a pigeon-loft at the top of a building is that it may form a conspicuous object, easily discerned from a great distance. There are, of course, many varieties of pigeon-lofts, according to the fancy of proprietors. The most approved model for the interior, now adopted by the chief societies of Belgium and France, is shown in the above illustration." Includes additional text.
