Found this printed on the reverse of an early folding map intended for automobile enthusiasts.

The map is a reproduction of a 1923 public works map by the city (previously), and in addition to the advertisement for Billups, also includes an advert for the Royal Blue Line Motor Tours of Richmond, VA (“Main Office and Starting Point Murphy’s Hotel”) offering “Coast to Coast Service” and a page proclaiming Richmond “The Home of Edgeworth Smoking Tobacco” and W-R-V-A (“Edgeworth Tobacco Station” & “The Voice of Virginia”).
