Advertisement showing J.O. Thornley Coffee Roaster & Spice Factory at 1215 South Third Street in Southwark. Depicts the factory buildings, including a "coffee roasting" facility, in the left of the image. Horse-drawn factory wagons, one marked "J.O. Thornley Coffee Roaster & Spice Factory Southwark," drawn by horse are parked in, and arrive and depart from around the factory, including the alley between the complex and a residence (Mrs. Smith). A laborer hoists a barrel up the front of the main building while in the street below another moves a sack from a pile of them marked "D&B." Two marked barrels also appear in the pile. Sheds adjoin the main factory building, and workers are visible operating equipment within the structures. Also shows an elegantly-attired couple walking past the residence in the right of the image.
