Interior has an eight-page pamphlet tipped-in at the left with: scoring point rules; suggestions for game strategy for Not-Trump Contract and Trump Contract; promotion of Lipton Tea including how to brew and recipes for several drinks, mostly iced ones. Hoboken is listed as the primary location for the company on page [7].

The clothing fashions worn by the woman depicted on the cover and the larger group shown on page [2] of the booklet strongly suggest the mid to late 1920s.
