Little is known about the makers of this card game, Picture Password. The firm was D.B. Brooks & Brother of Salem, MA. Possibly Parker Brothers, also of Salem, bought out the Brooks firm at some point. Though it lacks its instructions, the game is very likely a simple matching game, with images such as General Tom Thumb, P.T. Barnum, and of wild zoo animals. Like so many other games of this time it sought to educate as well as entertain.
