In these two advertisements for Stetson's Double Mammouth Uncle Tom, Tom is alternately a
comical grotesque (left) and a sentimental hero (right). Both posters were printed
by Donaldson's Litho, Newport, Kentucky. It's possible that Stetson's
used different posters in different towns, depending on which "Tom" they thought would prove most
attractive to white audiences -- though it is also possible that the incompatibility of these images simply reflects
the conceptual incoherence of the "Tom Show."
