This illustrated pamphlet was part of Barton's candy company informational materials about Jewish holidays. The story of Purim is told in cartoon form on one side, and a list of Barton's chocolates retail shops in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Bronx and Newark is on the back. Barton's was founded by Stephen Klein, a chocolatier from Vienna, who emigrated to the US in 1938. The candies were kosher, and Barton's shops were closed on the Sabbath and Jewish holidays.
